MOU on Reducing Lead in Drinking Water in Schools and Child Care Facilities
An MOU on Reducing Lead in Drinking Water in Schools and Child Care Facilities was recently signed by EPA and its numerous water industry partners including AWWA, NRWA, the states and others.
The signatories agree to encourage schools and child care facilities to take such steps, including training on lead; testing drinking water for lead; disseminating results to parents, students, staff, and other interested stakeholders; and facilitating appropriate corrective actions. The signatories also agree to encourage the drinking water community to assist schools and child care facilities in their efforts to understand and reduce lead exposure from drinking water.
