Lead Water Testing in Schools Nearly Nonexistent
According to a recent study by Center for Green Schools at the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), only 15 U.S. states have laws mandating lead testing in school drinking water.
Currently, states can take action to protect children from lead exposure in school drinking water in a number of ways; through laws, regulations and administrative policies.
Despite significant efforts to prevent lead exposure in certain states, most public schools are not required to test for lead in drinking water—the first step in preventing exposure for students.
