The Institute for Environmental Assessment, Inc. (IEA), helps clients manage lead. Lead poses significant health risks. Our clients include schools, hospitals, public agencies and commercial property owners.
Sources of lead
Lead is a heavy metal that can slow mental and physical growth if elevated levels are present in blood. Children with their developing physiology are particularly vulnerable to the toxic effects of lead. Even minor exposure to lead can cause nervous system disorders, lowered IQs, impaired memory and shortened attention spans. Sources of lead include drinking water components, contaminated soil, lead-based paint and plastics.
