The Leadline program works in partnership with other community groups and government agencies to help eliminate lead poisoning in Oregon. Leadline is funded by Multnomah County, the Portland Water Bureau, and the State of Oregon Lead Prevention Program.

The services we provide include:

  • The Leadline, a telephone information and referral line for questions about lead, lead testing and lead in drinking water.
  • Community outreach and education, including participation in community health fairs and community presentations.
  • Helping families who have children with high blood lead levels identify and reduce exposure to lead.
  • Promoting lead testing of children to identify those at risk for lead poisoning.
  • Coordinating our services with other community-based agencies to create an efficient program designed to prevent lead poisoning.

Prevention of lead poisoning can be accomplished by eliminating lead-based paint hazards before children are exposed. Our goal is to eliminate this disease by working to make Multnomah County housing lead-safe, and by improving the detection and treatment of lead poisoning.
