ABSTRACT
The article announces that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is initiating the Drinking Water Lead Reduction Plan (LCR) to strengthen, update and clarify existing requirements for water utilities and states to test for and reduce lead in drinking water. The move addresses the problem of lead in tap water in schools and childcare facilities. The LCR requires utilities to take actions to control corrosion in pipes and carry out public education to inform consumers about the ways to reduce exposure to lead. The LCR also requires utilities to test water at the tap.
