The ones that get away during testing! Particles of toxic lead solder elude detection in some water quality tests. http://www.nsf.gov/news/news_summ.jsp?cntn_id=107066

With 32 testing above the acceptable level, I feel it would be a wisely gathered statistic to determine their source of daily drinking water. Well? City? Filter? It would help the rest of the community, while determinations are being made, to avoid their own possible contamination.
