“Get the lead Out”
We are planning to raise awareness about this issue, partner with Masspirg.
Massachusetts is one of the few states to test extensively and publish all results showing any level of lead in schools water. The results are shocking: nearly half of the tests (49.7 percent) conducted at Bay State schools so far have found some level of lead in the water, according to data published by the state as of January 6, 2017.
Testing- see below, but testing is not enough and this is a national crisis.
Data from the Massachusetts Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs excel sheet on lead test results, Lead and Copper in School Drinking Water Sampling Results, Mass.gov, updated on January 6, 2016, http://www.mass.gov/eea/agencies/massdep/water/drinking/lead-and-copper-in-school-drinking-water-sampling-results.html.
