2010 The Authors. Best Practice Guide on the Control of Lead in Drinking Water. Edited by Dr Colin Hayes. ISBN: 9781843393696. Published by IWA Publishing, London, UK. 3 Lead in drinking water and lead in blood Studies in Scotland, Wales, Germany and the US have found that high lead concentrations in tap water can correlate with elevated body lead burden. 1 from Quinn and Sherlock (1990) and shows that blood lead concentrations of 20 and 25 mg/dl can increase in occurrence with higher average concentrations of lead in water over the range 20 to 100 mg/l.

Exposure to lead concentrations that are considered to be of health concern. 1: Semi-quantitative scoring allows control measures to be ranked in relation to the most significant hazards. The following working definitions are suggested, each with a numerical score: Likelihood: Almost certain Likely Moderately likely Unlikely Rare Severity: Catastrophic Major Moderate Minor Insignificant Definition: Once per day Once per week Once per month Once per year Once every five years Definition: Potentially lethal to large population Potentially lethal to small population Potentially harmful to large population Potentially harmful to small population No impact or not detectable Score: 5 4 3 2 1 Score: 5 4 3 2 1 The World Health Organization suggests that a matrix score of 6 should be used as the trigger for improvement action.

This is because the average lead concentration emitted is pipe length dependent whereas 30 minutes stagnation samples are not lead pipe length dependant (assuming no dilution effects from water stood in non-lead pipe-work). 6 a modelled as described in van der Leer et al. 1, E ¼ 150); standard daytime water consumption pattern with half hour flow frequency. Stagnation sampling can be used in the benchmarking of improvement measures based on water treatment, by repetitive sampling at selected properties.
