Lead contamination got a massive amount of publicity after the 2014–2015 water crisis in Flint, Michigan because the lead-tainted water was poisoning children. Since then, there is much more awareness of what a dangerous metal lead is, and many experts consider lead contamination a public health crisis. Sources of lead contamination are covered, as is how dangerous it is to human health, how serious the problem is, and what is being done about it.
