Lead concentration in nearly 60 homes exceeded this limit. These numbers mean that nearly 12 percent of homes in the area have high levels of lead, which has increased from 8 percent in 2011.Officials with the Colorado Department of Public Health have recommended that people in affected areas seek testing, especially children in low-income homes because they face the highest risk of exposure.
