|Public Health - Lead Testing|
121 W. Main Street Port Washington, WI 53074
Purpose: To improve the health of all Ozaukee County residents.
Approximately 33% of the housing stock in Ozaukee County was built prior
to 1978. These homes and especially those units built before 1950 may
have potential lead hazards. Lead paint and lead dust can be hazardous
to human health and particularly to developing children under the age of
six years. This department provides free walk-in lead screening to
children ages one through five (8:30 AM to 4:30 PM Mon thru Fri). In
addition, a certified lead inspector is available to perform home lead
assessments for children with elevated blood lead levels. A HEPA (high
efficiency particulate air) vacuum is also available for short-term
loan. Please call in advance to reserve the HEPA vacuum at 262-284-8170
(local) or 262-238-8170 (metro).
