UPDATE: Lead-based Paint Hazard Level

by Therese Searles
Jan 8, 2020

Regulatory Updates

Taking effect January 6, 2020, the State of Michigan has lowered the lead-based paint hazard level for dust and the corresponding dust-lead clearance level. These changes were made in response to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency lowering these standards at the federal level. These new, more stringent and protective levels are already used in certain federal grant programs under the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development -- such as in the Lead-Based Paint Hazard Control (LBPHC) and Lead Hazard Reduction Demonstration (LHRD) grant programs. For Envirologic's clients, these new levels will apply to Lead Inspection/Risk Assessment services performed for residential (single-family or multi-family) and mixed-use projects, especially those receiving federal assistance. Additional information can be found on the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, Healthy Homes Section website at https://www.michigan.gov/lead.

If you have questions about these new standards or how they may affect your project, please contact our Project Manager Therese Searles, certified Lead Inspector/Risk Assessor. She can be reached by phone at (800) 272-7802 or by email.
