California is replacing water lines that contain lead over the next several years, which can create lead hazards in drinking water. Here's how to protect your family:

Contact your local water utility or check this California Water Boards Map.  

Find water filters certified to reduce lead and know when to replace them. 

The only way to know if a child is lead poisoned is to ask their doctor for a blood lead test.  
For more information about lead service line replacement, click on the infographic, register for the webinar series, and visit the California Department of Public Health webpage.
