Get the Lead Out: Back-to-school toolkit

We developed this toolkit to help parents, teachers and school officials get the facts on lead in drinking water and take action to ensure safe drinking water at school.

Our children need safe drinking water — especially at school, where they go to learn and play each day. Unfortunately, lead is contaminating drinking water at schools and preschools across the country.

The problem stems from pipes, plumbing, faucets and fountains that contain lead. The common-sense solution is to “get the lead out” of schools’ water delivery systems.
