Since the 1970s, the United States has made progress in lowering children’s blood lead levels. Lead exposure, particularly at higher doses, continues to pose a significant health and safety threat to children, preventing them from reaching the fullest potential of their health, their intellect, and their future. Lead abatement is an activity designed to permanently eliminate lead-based paint hazards.
