Lead testing in sand

Asked June 18, 2016, 1:17 PM EDT

I got washed playground sand from a local rock quarry. I am concerned about potential lead levels of this sand. Can I send a sample in for testing? If so how much is needed?

The University of Minnesota can test for lead. See http://soiltest.cfans.umn.edu/testing-services/lawn-garden fo more information.
