Region 1: EPA New England

Schools and Drinking Water

Among their many duties, schools are responsible for providing safe drinking water to students and staff. EPA's New England Office has recently published a new Brochure and Poster for schools. The brochure addresses drinking water issues for schools including lead in drinking water, source water protection, water conservation, cross-contamination, and security. The Tips is intended for schools that operate their own drinking water supply and highlights ways to protect their source from contamination.
