Environmental engineers receive top science paper award for investigative work

nds of blood lead records, including hundreds of records of lead poisoned children from 2003. Moreover, a scientific evaluation of the data maintained by CNMC, showed much higher incidence of lead poisoning that could be linked to the high lead in water. Approximately 42,000 of Washington D.C. children from 2001-2003 were highly vulnerable to neurological harm from the lead in water.

In February of 2009, a class action lawsuit was filed, suing the D.C. Water and Sewer Authority for $200 million. The plaintiff, a single father, claimed lead-contaminated tap water poisoned his twin sons as infants, causing them ongoing health problems.
