Passaic; Ringwood 6/23/2011 State officials screen Upper Ringwood children for lead poisoning at town hall. Janae Van Dunk, 4, is comforted by Heather Van Dunk as nurse Lenore Bertolero tries get blood onto a test strip with the help volunteer Rhonda Thompson. The clinics are free and were scheduled after 10 local properties were found to have elevated levels of lead. The neighborhood is part of the Superfund site where Ford Motor Co. dumped paint sludge and other waste from its former Mahwah manufacturing plant more than 40 years ago.
