Houses in the county will be checked this spring for the risk of poisoning from lead-based paint, thanks to a $97,000 grant from the Environmental Protection Agency.
The money will be used for a home survey, voluntary blood testing for those at risk of paint poisoning, and education on the risks. It is a joint effort between the Clear Creek County Public and Environmental Health Department and the nonprofit Groundwork Denver.
In children under 6, as lead levels in their blood rise, IQ scores drop proportionally, according to Groundwork Denver.
