10:15 am
we'll rebound nicely in the afternoon because of low humidity and lots of sunshine. looking at the gdp, lots of sunshine. you can tell how bright it is out there. sunny and 52 degrees. the pleasant temperatures will really start to work in in the afternoon. we're going to gain 3 to 6 degrees per hour over the next several hours. so things will warm up quickly out there. on monday we get a lot milder, but there's an increase in cloud cover before our next storm system arrives. i think the rain will hold off on monday until at least the evening hours. but it will be a rainy tuesday. right now in sparta, 50 degrees. 52 in central park. 53 in long branch and farmingdale. on storm tracker, you can see nothing going on up and down the eastern seaboard. we cleared out that storm system from friday night through
10:16 am

10:18 am
safe is the water in our area. this morning we have the answers. >> chris glorioso found schools are not the only places registering toxic levels of lead. >> we put a dot on the map for every high lead test at the water system and we found high lead levels have been recorded in surprising places, a hospital, casino, pre-k program, even an agricultural facility that produces food. about an hour and a half west of manhattan you'll find ise farms, one of the biggest egg producers in new jersey. it's a favorite target of animal rights activists who captured this video of hens in cramped conditions. but the i-team found that ise farms has a troubled history of water inspections, including a
10:19 am
threshold. that leaves grocery shoppers wondering if the hens could have consumed lead laden water. >> it is concerning because this little guy eats an egg every day. >> the farm does not have a history of high lead tests. i don't think there's inherent risk to the egg, he said. last year's high lead test came from a woman's bathroom in the farm's office. when the faucet was retested, the levels went back down. but the farm could not say whether the water used to hydrate the hens was lead free partly because only faucets used by humans are tested. the water supply on this egg farm is one of dozens of tri-state water systems where the i-team found one high lead reading in recent years. we plotted the all of the water systems on this map. the bigger the dot, the higher the lead reading over 15 parts per billion. that's the federal threshold. the water systems include public water supplies and private wells used by
10:20 am
residential communities. >> you are doing a tremendous service putting these places on a map for people to see. >> jon jay college professor carl markowitz is a historian and says people could be unaware of the smaller water systems with the high lead levels. the bigger water systems get the attention. but he argues that governments should apply pressure to privately owned wells. >> we could require private entities to replace lead service lines, replace lead fixtures, and that they bear the cost of that. >> become at this new jersey egg farm, the state asked owners to install a pump that will flush the water with a chemical that reduces lead. the farm has two years to install the pump and if water samples continues to show low lead levels, the farm can cancel plans for the pump.
10:21 am
toxin that caught the eye of regulators. since 2013, the dep has issued issued violations for e. coli, coliform and asbestos in the water here. the agency says the farm is now back in compliance. it's not clear in the hens ever consumed any of those toxins or why they showed up in the first place. >> the testing simply tells you that there is a problem and then you need to investigate what's causing that particular problem. >> it's unclear how much lead hens would have to consume for the toxin to make it into their eggs. but a study by iowa state university did find lead made it into egg yolks after the hens consumed lead paint chips. if you want to find out where high lead levels have been conducted near you, go to nbcnewyork.com and accept this map. this indicates where lead levels were high, and many of the

10:25 am
sweating it up. he recorded a good luck message to the runners that was shown on the marathon route on the big screen. the london marathon wrapped up earlier this morning. tim's on it. >> yeah. a bit easier for him. >> i can imagine. >> i would still struggle. walking through a field full of explosives, all in a day's work for one russian how old is soldier. >> here's the video. the bomb tester, happens to be a woman. walks through a field of bombs wearing an explosive proof suit. only one time there, that's the only time i saw her flinch. i watched this several times. other times walking through like the terminator, which when russian officials posted this video, they say the terminator is a sad excuse compared to the might of the russian military. >> something out of james bond. we'll come right back with a
10:26 am
10:27 am
10:28 am
good weekend to get out there and do something. maybe with a little jacket. >> jacket or a sweater. mid 60s typical for this time of year. that's where we'll get this afternoon. lots of sunshine. when you're standing out in the sun it will feel nice and warm. we don't have the breezes that we did during the afternoon through last night. then tomorrow gets downright warm with a high of 74. keeping it dry through the daylight hours tomorrow. so, if you do have the day off, it will be another great day to be outside. tuesday is a rainy day. high of 67. on and off showers for most of the day. >> on and off. >> yeah. >> we'll try to catch them when they're off. >> thank you. thank you for spending this sunday morning with us. we do appreciate that. our next newscast is at 6:00. >> i'll be there. >> i know you will be. >> working a double. >> double duty this weekend. happy to helpment. >> we appreciate it. we loved having you off. you can get updates any time at
