Lead Information

October 2017

 

The City of Trenton performs regular testing to assure the safety of its drinking water. During the month of September 2017, twenty locations were tested and three of those locations were found to be above the level recommended by the Missouri Department of Natural Resources (DNR).

The City of Trenton mailed a notification to all its customers about lead in drinking water. The letter includes information about the possible effects of lead exposure and what customers can do to reduce exposure to lead through their drinking water.

The City of Trenton has established a hotline number for questions regarding this event: (660) 234-9172.

The Grundy County Health Department routinely tests children for lead exposure, if you have a child under the age of six, they may have already been tested. GCHD can bill private insurance or Medicaid for the cost and have funds available if you are uninsured. If you have questions about lead testing, please contact our office
at (660) 359-4196.
