Massachusetts Earmarks $2 Million to Test Water for Lead

5/6/2016

After Massachusetts earmarked $2 million for water testing, Governor ma-clean-water-trust-logo.jpgCharlie Baker said, "Protecting the health of our children is a top priority." The $2 million will be used to test water in public schools throughout Massachusetts, and address any problems that are found. It will also help train personnel about lead, and plan for future testing to ensure the water/pipes remain safe. 

The state Department of Environmental Protection will oversee and manage the money. The $2 million is a mixture of state and federal funds coming from the Massachusetts Clean Water Fund. Schools will have to sign up to access the funds and testing. Officials anticipate there will be enough funding for all schools who want to participate.
