Heavy metals come in many forms. Some of the most common include lead, mercury, and arsenic. Many people don''t realize that these chemicals can be present in drinking water.

The primary heavy metal found in Puerto Rico tap water is lead. It leaches into the ground water and gets caught up in vegetation and crops. The process occurs slowly. It takes years to accumulate enough lead to cause a problem. Over time, small children are more likely to become victims of lead poisoning.
