A program providing technical assistance and lead in drinking water testing to public and private schools and childcare facilities.

Water-Smart, a program of the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP) with support from the University of Massachusetts - Amherst, offers eligible public and private schools and childcare facilities free and easy drinking water lead testing, along with access to results, and solutions for elevated levels of lead, if found. After testing and consultation, participants will receive certification acknowledging that they have tested their drinking water and taken any needed actions. Participants will also receive the Water-Smart Seal of Approval to display at their school or facility. Water-Smart is funded through the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Water Infrastructure Improvements for the Nation (WIIN) Act Voluntary School and Child Care Lead Testing and Reduction Grant Program and the Massachusetts Clean Water Trust.
