Tap Water Watch is happy to announce it’s partnership with AASA – The School Superintedents Association.
By working together, we will be able to align synergies and better service school districts throughout the country.
“Millions of American homes and schools continue to supply drinking water throughout old lead pipes,” said Daniel A. Domenech, executive director, AASA. “Lead gets into drinking water after it leaves a city water treatment plant in the lead service lines, plumbing, solder and water fixtures. We are pleased that Tap Water Watch is an AASA School Solutions partner to help school districts come up with solutions so more students can have access to safe drinking water.”
Based on EPA data, last year 18 million Americans were served water by systems that failed the Lead and Copper Rule, a U.S. federal regulation which limits the concentration of lead and copper allowed in public drinking water.
“Odds are there are water fountains within every school that have elevated levels of lead,” said Scott Nelson, Founder, Tap Water Watch. “As pressure mounts from state legislators, the media and concerned parents, school districts have a choice to either proactively test and fix any issues on their own or be forced to reactively test while under the media spotlight.”
