Start Preamble


Environmental Protection Agency.




The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is holding a workshop to discuss issues concerning lead in drinking water in schools and child care facilities. The EPA recognizes that lead in drinking water most often occurs within the distribution system and the Agency is especially concerned about its effects on vulnerable populations, such as children. The EPA is hosting this workshop to discuss experiences and options with national experts in drinking water and children's health and education. The workshop participants will discuss best practices to promote awareness and water testing in schools and child care facilities, linkages between water suppliers and school officials, school and child care facilities participation in voluntary programs, and the Lead and Copper Rule and Lead Contamination Control Act as they apply to schools and child care facilities. The EPA has been working with the Department of Education to plan this event.


The workshop will be held on December 7, 2004, 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Eastern time.


The workshop will be held at the Wyndham Washington Hotel, 1400 M Street NW., Washington, DC 20005.
