        wait a minute...dont go another futher
        you said..ALL the residents were notified?
        if that statement is true, and your sons home is a single family dwelling. the problem is not his plumbing or his house..its the water authoritys problem..
        your sons home water will not effect all the other homes water/lead levels...that would have to come from the source
        sounds like they have some old pipes in there system?????
        MAYBE..till you get the water tested,,you dont know

        dont count on the landlord, thru his statememnt of all pipes have lead, flush the pipes bullchit.he's is telling you, .he will do nothing



        I think you hit the nail on the head with this reply.
