Durham, N.C. fails to report lead detected in tap water

Michael Biesecker of The News & Observer in Raleigh, N.C., reports that the city of Durham failed to inform state regulators that there was tainted drinking water in the area. A report submitted in October claimed that the city's drinking water met federal standards despite the fact that several tests detected lead in the tap water. "Durham officials acknowledged this week that they failed to disclose at least 20 test results from seven homes to state regulators, a violation of federal rules."
