How can I make an abestos or lead complaint about my home, workplace or school?
The Department of Environmental Protection arranges to have your water tested for lead. All other questions about lead or other hazardous materials are handled by the Department of Health, except when the condition is in a school. In that case, contact the NYC Department of Education.
