There are ways to reduce the risk of exposure. Make sure to flush your pipes before drinking the water. You do this by running the water for at least 60 seconds until water becomes as cold as it can get.
It's also important to only use cold water for drinking and cooking. Hot water is more likely to contain higher levels of lead because hot water causes more lead to dissolve off the pipes or the soder. A water filter may also help but make sure the label say it can be used for lead reduction.
