Description

Germany is known for having great tap water. However, since it is an older country, in certain homes and buildings lead piping still exists, and many people are not even aware of this. Because of these pipes, lead can seep into the tap water and have negative impacts on one’s health. This is why I want to measure concentrations of lead in tap water in different areas of Germany to see where lead may be a concern.
