  Lead poisoning, whether caused by lead-based paint or other sources of lead, have a profound negative effect on the human body, and children under the age of six are especially vulnerable. The Lead Paint Hazard Control Program eliminates lead-based paint hazards and other lead-related hazards from single-family and multi-family residences.  This includes remediation of both exterior and interior lead-paint hazards.

  The City of Omaha Planning Department will perform stabilization of deteriorated Lead-based paint at properties in eastern Omaha where a soil cleanup has been or will be performed. Stabilization helps prevent loose, flaking Lead-based paint on the outside of homes from falling to the ground and raising Lead concentrations to unsafe levels in the soil. Children can inadvertently swallow paint chips or Lead-contaminated soil causing Lead-poisoning, which can result in irreversible adverse health effects. Thee purpose of the Lead-based paint stabilization program is to assure that soil Lead levels remain protective following the soil cleanup.
