EPA Publishes New Best Management Practices for Schools and Child Care Centers

EPA’s “Recent Additions” link on their water.epa.gov website contains two new publications that offer best management practices for the water systems serving schools and child care centers.

Both guides detail the importance of implementing best management practices of drinking water in a school or child care facility and practices a school or child care facility can implement to reduce lead and bacteria in their facility, and how to avoid cross contamination and water conservation tips.
