Lead Sample Collection Kit

The Lead Sample Collection Kit provides supplies to collect paint chips, house dust, and soil from your home.  The samples are then returned to our lab for analysis, which takes 2-4 weeks.  We will send you a report  that explains the meaning of the lead levels from the different locations sampled. The report provides information on steps you can take to minimize lead exposure and how to access resources and services through the Saint Joseph County Health Department and the City of South Bend.

If you need a kit or have questions about what the reported results mean,  you can email our team at lead@nd.edu
