EPA Releases Drinking Water DVD For Schools

August 8, 2007

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is releasing a new, free DVD, “What Your School or Child Care Facility Should Know About Lead in Drinking Water;” and a new document, “Water Quality Funding Sources for Schools - A Resource for K-12 and Child Care Facilities.” These materials explain how schools and child care facilities can test for lead in drinking water; report results to parents, students, staff and other interested parties; and fund actions to address environmental issues in their facilities.
