Urge your governor to get the lead out of school drinking water

Dear Governor,

I am deeply concerned about the threat of lead-tainted water in our schools and pre-schools. Lead is especially toxic to children, and should not be in school and pre-school drinking water.

Our state must do more to get the lead out of schools’ drinking water. We must remove lead-bearing pipes and plumbing, install and maintain filters certified to remove lead, and allow no more than 1 ppb of lead in schools’ drinking water, consistent with recommendations of the American Academy of Pediatrics.

I urge you to support these policies, so we can ensure that all our children have lead-free water to drink.
