Can anyone shed light on the risk factor of using water from lead pipes for hand washing, cleaning etc. ? I'm being told at my new work location to not drink the water, but I'm concerned about the safety issue of absorbing this water through skin contact. They are providing us with a filtered water system for drinking but I am not confident that sufficient lead will be removed. Having heard/read a number of times about the high incidence rate of PD among jobs related to chemical and pesticide exposure, I'm nervous! Please advise if you can. thanks
