Keith Rickabaugh, CIH, was interviewed regarding testing of water for lead by Don Hopey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Pittsburgh has spent the last several months working to reduce the amount of lead in the city’s drinking water. First, providing free testing to residents, then handing out free water pitcher filter systems for those whose drinking water was found to contain detectable levels of lead. The program providing these filters is called the Safe Water Program. When the testing began, Keith Rickabaugh and RJ Lee Group, analytical laboratory accredited to perform water testing in Pennsylvania, Washington, New York, and California, provided water testing results for a KDKA news story.
