MENASHA, Wis. - Routine testing found some Menasha homes have lead levels in their water above the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's action limit, Menasha Utilities said Tuesday.
The EPA action limit is 15 parts per billion, or 0.015 milligrams of lead per liter of water, according to Menasha Utilities.
Menasha Utilities source water, water mains and finished drinking water do not contain lead. However, when water is in contact with pipes or service lines and plumbing containing lead for several hours, lead could enter drinking water, Menasha Utilities said.
