BAY STATE SCHOOLS DRINKING WATER IS GRADED A “D” 

By Bob Katzen

Massachusetts was graded on protecting children from lead in water at schools and received a grade of “D.”

   Environment Massachusetts Research & Policy Center and MASSPIRG Education Fund last week issued “Get the Lead Out,” a 31-page report that examines lead laws in 16 states. Neighboring states Connecticut and Maine both received an “F.”

   The report confirmed that 49.7 percent of more than 40,000 tests have confirmed lead in the Bay State’s schools’ water.
