Lead Testing Program

About the Program

West Central MN Communities Action Lead Testing Program has Gene Wyttenback and Toby Weigand, Certified Lead Risk Assessors, to conduct an assessment and paint inspections.

  • A risk assessment is an on-site investigation to determine presence, type, severity, and location of lead-based paint hazards and provide suggested ways to control them.
  • A paint inspection is a surface-by-surface investigation to determine whether there is lead-based paint in the home.

The goal of this program is to detect and help prevent exposure of children and pregnant women to a hazardous health-harming substance.  Lead can have serious effects on all children and pregnant women, but most of all on children under the age of six.

If your home was built before 1978, it has a higher chance of containing lead paint.
