More fallout from resignation of #Milwaukee Health Commissoner: City plans to notify, or re-notify as the case may be, the parents of the approximately 8-thousand children who have tested positive for elevated levels of lead dating to 2015. Some could be re-tested. #WISN12 at 5
Presentation from Milwaukee Health Department shows there was a “significant drop in documentation” of lead level testing starting in 2015. It’s not clear why. @MKE_CC holding committee meeting on breakdown in lead notifications to families. #WISN12
In response to question from Ald. Zielinski, @MayorOfMKE says “I would be happy to have an audit” of the Health Department. #WISN12
Milwaukee Health Department representative testifies that the city does not have the authority to order property owners to replace lead water laterals, even if people show elevated lead levels in blood testing.
