According to the NJ Department of Environmental Protection, lead exposure from drinking water can cause serious health problems including increased blood pressure and decreased kidney function in adults, and contribute to learning and behavioral problems in children. For information about the health effects of lead, how lead gets into drinking water, and how to reduce the risk of potential exposure, please view the Lead Service Line FAQ for Consumers (PDF).

Renters who have mold problems in their rental space often have difficulty getting the mold problem corrected. Due to the lack of regulations, government offices have little authority to cite building owners regarding mold contamination. Englewood renters should contact the local Building Code office at 201-871-6642 regarding any unrepaired building leaks. When doing so, please be reminded that building code offices, like other government offices, most likely do not have mold regulations. Therefore, they will only be able to address structural deficiencies such as water leaks, plumbing issues, etc. For more information about your rights as a tenant, visit the New Jersey Department of Community Affairs' Landlord-Tenant Information website.
