Thereafter, the full benefit of dosing was demonstrated over the period 1999–03, albeit a single sample exceeded all three lead standards in 2001. Despite this single atypical result, the comparison of the bulked results for 1990–4, 1996–8 and 1999–03 clearly demonstrate the success of ortho-phosphate dosing. 6. 6 Numbers of RDT samples and permitted numbers of failures in Scotland for 95% confidence in achieving compliance with a 95% compliance target against 10 mg/l (Scottish Executive, 2007) Number of RDT samples required Number of permitted failures vs 10 mg/l 59 93 124 153 208 336 0 1 2 3 5 10 Benchmark monitoring at selected properties As an alternative to random daytime sampling, but preferably as a supplementary monitoring method, stagnation sampling at selected properties can provide useful information on the effectiveness of dosing ortho-phosphate for reducing plumbosolvency.

Corrective water treatments of Glasgow’s water supplies were applied in 1979 (lime to raise pH) and again in the mid-1980s (additional dosing of ortho-phosphate). 2 summarises the reductions in water lead and blood lead that were achieved, based on the study by Moore et al. (1998). In another study by Watt et al. 9 mg/dl 12 years previously. , 1998). 4 27 Lead in blood and health effects The action level for blood lead in the United States, used in the prevention of lead poisoning in children, is 10 mg/dl, although it has recently been suggested (Gilbert and Weiss, 2006) that it should be lowered to 2 mg/dl as this lower level can be measured accurately and would encourage further action to reduce childhood lead exposure.

There should be an appropriate balance between public and private buildings and consumers’ taps in individual buildings can be chosen at random from billing lists, electoral registers, post code lists or other similar and suitable lists. A house should not be selected twice in one year. It is common for the sampler to fail to gain access to the property selected for sampling. In such cases, the sampler should simply attempt to gain access to an adjacent property (randomness will be preserved). Random daytime sampling does not suffer from dilution effects nor from potential problems with selecting representative sampling locations.
