"" Guidance and Tools

The guidance and tools presented below focus on key aspects of lead sampling procedures in school facilities. The tools are presented by topic and provide supplemental ways to learn about these topics including, video demonstrations, guidance documents, pictures, and taped segments from in-person training.

“Sampling for lead is a complex process. It must be done carefully in order to ensure that the results are representative of water being consumed by children and staff, and that the samples are useful with regard to identifying the true sources of lead.”
