About This Study
Our research group is looking for participants in a lead testing study.
You must have a private well and a child under the age of 7 living in the home in order to qualify.
If you or someone you know is using water from a private well in North Carolina, you may be at a higher risk for lead exposure than those on public utilities. We are a research group investigating lead in private well water, and we hope that our work will help inform communities and keep families safe from lead contamination. To reach this goal, we’re looking for participants in our study. In order to qualify, you must have a child between three months and seven years old living in the household and drink or cook with water from a private well.
If you participate in our study, you will receive:
- A $75 cash gift card
- A free water test to determine lead levels
- A free blood test for your child to check for lead exposure
- Personalized information on how to care for you and your family’s water based on the test results!
