ACWA Hosting Jan. 9 Webinar on New State Law Regarding School Lead Testing by Will Holbert Jan 3, 2018 Water News ACWA will host a Tuesday, Jan. 9 informational webinar for public and community water systems that will provide updates to requirements for testing lead in the drinking water at California schools and for compiling lead user service line inventories in service distribution areas. The 2 to 4 p.m. webinar will focus on new requirements under AB 746 (Gonzalez Fletcher, 2017), which sets a July 1, 2019 deadline for community water systems to test lead levels in school drinking water. The requirements affect all California public, K-12 schools constructed before Jan. 1, 2010. The webinar will provide information that water systems can forward to schools within their service area. State Water Board staff will also outline reporting requirements under SB 1398 (Leyva, 2016) and SB 427 (Leyva, 2017) for community water systems to compile and submit inventories of lead user service lines by July 1, 2018.
