There is no safe level of lead exposure for children – all children need clean drinking water, no matter who they are or where they live.
Testing is the only way to confirm if your water has lead
What Is LeadCare Illinois?
In Illinois, certain licensed child care facilities are required to test their drinking water for lead and mitigate, if necessary. LeadCare Illinois empowers child care providers to address water safety by providing free lead in water testing and education.
