Lead is a toxic metal that can accumulate in the body over time and cause various health problems such as developmental delays in children and reproductive issues in adults. The primary source of lead in drinking water is through lead pipes, plumbing fixtures, and solder. Lead levels in drinking water are regulated by the EPA, and testing for lead is essential in ensuring safe consumption.
