This manual demonstrates how drinking water in schools and non-residential buildings can be tested for lead and how contamination problems can be corrected if found. It also provides background information concerning the sources and health effects of lead, how lead gets into drinking water, how lead in drinking water is regulated, and how to communicate lead issues with a facility's users. This manual is intended for use by officials responsible for the maintenance and/or safety of these facilities. Appendices contain a directory of Environmental Protection Agency and State drinking water programs, a terms glossary, a water cooler summary, a list of lead resources, a sample record keeping form, and containers for preserving samples.
