Lead Result Question from PR

Posted to Lead Information by Parris Crooks

Below is a question from Pinedale Roundup and the Town's response.

Greetings,
Just a quick clarification on the recent lead-testing results.  I know the statement says 143 signed up, which was reiterated last night. However, I have a quote from the Feb. 27 council meeting in which you say that "about 250 (people) signed up for that."  I've also received other reports that put the number at over 200 as well.  So, I 'm wondering if the recent results are a partial list and we're waiting on more, or if that's the extent of the town's testing.  It seems a difference of 100 or so is not insignificant.
Thanks,
Stephen


Stephen,
We had approximately 225 sign-ups for the free lead tests.  We have tested and received results for 143 properties.  Another 20 or so properties are seasonal residences and will be tested in the early summer.  That leaves approximately 60 properties that signed up for the lead test but never scheduled one.  We made multiple efforts to contact these property owners via email and phone calls.  The majority of the properties that did not schedule a test were rental properties. The rental manager signed up for the tests but left it up to the renters to schedule the test.
