5:38 am
lead paint as the problem, not the water. it was used on homes built before 1978 and those make up the bulk of fruitvale's properties. >> over the last 10 years, we treated over 5,000 children for lead poisoning here in alameda county. it is still a clear, present danger for children who are living in aging homes. >> alameda county says it has over $3 million budgeted to help low income homeowners deal with lead concerns. as the bay area builds up its transportation infrastructure to get people where we ned to go, dozens of har -- where we need to go, dozenser harbor seals have to make an adjustment. these guys had trade a dock in alameda for a special concrete styrofoam platform. their long-time perch was removed in july to make room for a ferry maintenance facility but neighbors pushed for a replacement and that platform was built.
