Hawaii is home to one of the most polluted public health systems in the world
Hawai’i is home with some of the highest levels of lead in the nation, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
The state is home and home with the highest level of lead exposure in the country, with more than 25 million people living in the state living in elevated levels of elevated levels, according the CDC.
Hawaii’s lead levels were found in water samples taken from residents, but there is no standard way to measure how much lead is in the water.
The lead levels in the drinking water in Hawaii are highest when the levels of a pollutant, like arsenic, are high, the CDC says.
Lead in the soil is the third leading cause of death in the United States, with nearly 50,000 people dying from the toxin.
The levels of the pollutant in the Hawaiian water are so high that even though the soil can absorb lead from the air, people can still get lead from their skin and teeth, the agency says.
A new state law was signed in June that will provide funding for a new state-funded water testing program for all residents in the islands, including those living on the mainland.
The state will also spend $150,000 a year to purchase and install new testing equipment for the state’s water systems, and the department will develop and distribute guidelines for residents to follow to protect their health and the environment.
The water system is one of two major sources of lead pollution in the area, and water tests have been used in other states to detect and control lead levels.
Lead contamination of drinking water is a significant problem in the states most populous state.
The highest level was detected in Lake Tahoe in 2016, when lead levels of more than 0.03 micrograms per deciliter (μg/dL) were found at a water treatment plant in the city of Big Island.
The EPA estimates that as many as 8 million people in the U.S. could be exposed to lead from lead-based paint and plumbing, and that 1.4 million children could be at risk, according The New York Times.
