The NJDEP has recommended that schools implement their own program to reduce lead levels in the drinking water.
To assist districts that decide to test for lead in the water in their school buildings, the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has developed a guidance document Lead in Drinking Water: Guidance for Schools and Child Care Facilities Served by Public Water. It includes a comprehensive set of guidelines for training, testing and telling: 3Ts for Reducing Lead in Drinking Water in Schools: Revised Technical Guidance.
