From the Maryland Department of the Environment:

MDE’s Lead Poisoning Prevention Program serves as the coordinating agency of statewide efforts to eliminate childhood lead poisoning. Under the 1994 “Reduction of Lead Risk in Housing Act,” MDE assures compliance with mandatory requirements for lead risk reduction in rental units built before 1950, maintains a statewide listing of registered and inspected units and provides blood lead surveillance through a registry of test results of all children tested in Maryland. Alleged violations typically involve a failure to register properties or meet lead risk reduction standards.

The following actions were for properties alleged to be out of compliance with lead risk reduction standards:

  • Joseph Nwoga and Susan Nwoga – 3 affected properties, $33,000 for alleged violations.
  • Bernard Austin and Constance Young – 2 affected properties, $16,500 for alleged violations.
  • George W. Johnson III and Anita Johnson – 2 affected properties, $16,500 for alleged violations.
