Maryland Department of Environment
Montgomery County Council and the County Executive's office requested a lead study from the MDE and their response begins:
"Thank you for your recent letter requesting lead monitoring equipment for the Montgomery County Airpark to assess ambient lead concentrations and the impact on surrounding neighborhood communities. In 2017, with the EPA’s approval, the Department discontinued the one remaining lead monitoring site in Maryland due to levels consistently below the analytical method's detection limit."
