Lead Advisory Lifted In Greenville

A lead advisory in affect for two years in Greenville has been lifted. Pitt County's health director made the announcement for Greenville Utilites customers after a recent report showed water samples met the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's action level requirements. The advisory was initially issued in May 2005 after an investigation of elevated blood lead levels in two Greenville children discovered lead levels in tap water that were above the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's action level for lead.
