Milwaukee’s Lead Legacy: A New Wisconsinite’s Observations of His Adopted State
When you move to a new place there are things you think about because you know they will change (mailing address, insurance coverage and cost, and, if you are me, local elected officials). There are other things you don’t think about because they are part of a cultural background and as a stranger in a strange land you don’t know they change (Every one eats at a Friday fish fry, Neighborhoods set days/times for Trick-or-Treating, and, if you are not me, local elected officials). One thing I never considered when moving to Milwaukee was that my tap water might not be safe to drink.
It’s not. My tap water has lead in it.
