Millions of people around the world are exposed to lead contamination of water and its harmful effects. Exposure to lead, especially in children, have lasting effects to development of brain, nervous system, and organs. It is estimated that over 5000 water systems, in US alone, have lead contamination issues. The problem is compounded by the fact that accurate and actionable detection of lead in water today is an expensive and time consuming process.
