Lead in Schools’ Drinking Water

Testing Drinking Water for Lead in Public Schools and Licensed Daycare Facilities

In cooperation with the RI Department of Health and a diverse advisory group, we are helping make recommendations about how to assess lead and copper in public schools and licensed daycare facilities.  This work is a result of the recent state legislation, RI House Bill H 8127 Substitute A, An Act Relating to Waters and Navigation – Lead and Copper Drinking Water Protection Act.

This portion of the website is under construction, but it will be used to share materials related to that work.

October 23rd -29th  was National Lead Poisoning Prevention Week. The Week’s theme, “Lead-Free Kids for a Healthy Future,” highlighted ways parents can reduce a child’s exposure to lead and prevent its serious health effects. This project helps supports that effort! Please share this link for more information https://www.epa.gov/lead/lead-poisoning-prevention-week-2016!
