[ARCHIVED] Lead Testing in School

Lead Testing

Santa Rosa’s water system is continually monitored to ensure our drinking water meets or exceeds the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s and State Water Resources Control Board’s drinking water requirements.  Santa Rosa Water delivers approximately six billion gallons of drinking water, each year, to over 53,000 customer accounts, including schools. To ensure that older plumbing fixtures and components are not leaching lead into the water supply, Santa Rosa Water will perform water quality testing at K-12 public schools per the California State Water Board Division of Drinking Water’s (DDW) new guidelines

In 2017, the Governor of California signed into law Assembly Bill (AB) 746, requiring water systems in California to test the water for lead at all K-12 public schools that the public water system serves.  This testing is required to be completed before July 1, 2019.    

At Santa Rosa Water, we are committed to supporting our schools’ efforts to protect public health and ensure that the drinking water at their sites meets lead standards.  Per the Federal and State guidelines for lead testing, we are working with schools in our service area to develop a water sampling plan, test samples, and conduct follow-up monitoring for any school that needs to take action.

Test results will be posted California State Water Board Division of Drinking Water’s searchable map. Click here for more information and to view results.
