Take action to protect our kids from lead in school drinking water
Dear Governor Inslee and State Leaders,
A recent Environment Washington study found that 60.8% of taps tested in Washington state schools had unsafe levels of lead. Lead should not be in the drinking water systems at the places where our children go to learn.
HB 1860 would require schools to notify parents when tests detect lead levels at 1 part per billion (ppb), and to fix water outlets where lead levels reach 5 ppb or higher. I support HB 1860, which would protect our kids from lead in school drinking water. I urge you to take action and support HB 1860 too.
