Lead in Drinking Water Program
The School Facilities Board, in collaboration with the Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) and the Department of Health Services (ADHS), is working with Arizona school districts to remediate potential sources of lead in drinking water. School districts may apply for Building Renewal Grant (BRG) funding to replace drinking fountains and sink faucets, install in-line filters and conduct post-corrective action testing to ensure the availability of safe drinking water in Arizona schools. The link provided above is to the SFB's Lead in Drinking Water (LIDW) Process Flow and Huddle Board, where we track the progress of BRG remediation projects through to completion. Please contact Bill DeArmond at [email protected] or 602-542-6667 if you have any questions about the program.
In addition, we have provided the link below to the ADEQ website for the proactive screening program.
