Health Dept. Spreads Awareness On Lead Poisoning
Published: May 11th, 2022

CHENANGO COUNTY — The Chenango County Department of Health will be visiting area towns to educate the community on the importance of lead and lead poisoning. We call this program Lead Walk and have been doing this event since 2012.

We will be visiting the towns of Afton, Bainbridge, Earlville, Greene, Guilford, New Berlin, Norwich, Plymouth, Sherburne, South New Berlin, and the City of Norwich. This year’s theme is “No Lead Level is Safe!”

Look for gray/purple paper doorknob hangers on your front door to access the educational information about lead poisoning. Additional information on rabies prevention will also be distributed.

Staff will be leaving this information at each residence in your village starting May 16, through the month of June at your door. Staff members will be using pedometers to “check our steps” and try to pass the 200-mile mark as a team.
