Nearly 20% Of California Schools Show Lead In Water


One in five California schools showed lead in tests of drinking water this year.  The state requires all K-12 schools to test and report by July 1st. 

The Environmental Working Group compiled the date from the state Water Resources Control Board.  EWG points out that no lead exposure is considered safe.  The group's Senior Advocate for California Government Affairs, Susan Little, is our guest, armed with facts and figures from the testing.
