  QUESTION: Lead Assessors in Melbourne, 17 Apr 2004, Victoria Australia

Could you please tell me if there is anyone in Melbourne who will come out and test our home for the presence of lead. The house is almost one hundred years old and we have a two and four year old. How much should we expect this service to approximately cost?

Thank you for your time.

ANSWER: 21 Jul 2004

Dear Eva,

Sorry for the delay in responding but there are no wages here now due to NSW government funding cuts (and the Victorian government has steadfastly refused to accept the need for the Lead Advisory Service now for over 10 years) so I'm the only one who'll work for nothing all day every day and that's not enough to keep up with the level of inquiries (especially from Victoria, our second biggest supplier of inquirers after NSW).

The following Melbourne lead assessors are known to the Lead Advisory Service:

  • Don Bartlett, CTI Consultants Pty Ltd - Victoria, ph 98507407, mobile 0413126753;
  • Michael Wright, MGT Environmental Consulting, ph 95647055;
  • Peter Lux, Aadland & Lux Consultants, ph 94974399; and
  • ETRS Pty Ltd, ph 1800671096, 93634288, mobile 0438437089.

Yours Sincerely
Elizabeth O'Brien
