Drinking Water Sampling
Required Drinking Water Testing AB746
The Westminster School District is proactive in protecting kids from lead in drinking water. AB746 requires City Water Districts to test all schools water supplies by 2019. As a proactive measure, the Westminster School District tested all drinking water sources on our campuses.
State and Federal guidelines require notification to parents and community and corrective action be taken if lead is found in drinking water at levels of 15 parts-per-billion (pb) or higher.
We are pleased to report that the results of our testing were well below these standards and our drinking water is safe for our students. In fact, the district is focused on maintaining guidelines that require drinking water to meet a strict level of less than 5 ppb in all of our schools, which is the same standard as the FDA requirement for bottled water! We take pride in the upkeep of our Westminster School District Facilities and are pleased to be complying with the new regulations of AB746.
