Ohio Prioritizes Lead Abatement Initiatives

2019 has seen a number of important initiatives undertaken by the state to mitigate lead contamination in housing across the state. While programs have been available in the past, and a number of cities have undertaken their own initiatives, the state is now stepping-up with a number of new initiatives that seek to eliminate lead contamination in homes built prior to 1978.
