Safe Drinking Water at School and Daycare
If there's one thing we shouldn't have to worry about, it's safe drinking water for Michigan schools and daycares.
New legislation just introduced in the state Legislature could ensure kids have safe drinking water at school and daycare.
According to WILX, the legislation would require all Michigan schools and day care centers to provide filtered water at fountains or filling stations.
The legislation would amend Michigan's Safe Drinking Water Act to require schools and day cares to install filtered water outlets and on tap filters following a phase-in period.
The Department of Environment Great Lakes and Energy would be required to help schools and day cares with drinking water safety plans.
The legislation would require schools and day cares to test their water annually and replace the filters when needed.
