Reducing environmental lead exposure is a crucial part of public health initiatives. The Lead and Copper Rule (LCR) is a corrosion control rule for drinking water that seeks to reduce the amount of lead in tap water. It is important for all schools to develop a well-rounded hydration policy. The determinants for SODIS-adoption are related to consciousness about health matters.
Session Objectives: 1.Identify strategies and opportunities to increase the number of people with access to fluoridated public water supplies 2. To develop a well-rounded hydration policy for schools. 3.Identify the public health collaborative elements of the Lead and Copper Rule for Safe Drinking Water Act.
