The NJ school drinking water regulation has changed and here are some quick highlights below.
Testing can begin in July 2021 and is every 3 years from there.
“Notwithstanding the results or date of any prior testing, all district boards of education shall continue to test drinking water outlets as provided below in the designated Statewide required testing year, which shall be every third school year beginning with the 2021-2022 school year and subsequently occurring in the 2024-2025 school year”
All district boards of education shall sample for lead after the replacement of any drinking water outlet or any other alteration to plumbing or service lines that may impact lead levels at the outlet.
District boards of education that test drinking water outlets more frequently in accordance with (h) above shall make the most recent results for each facility available on the district board of education’s website.
