Get the Lead Out of School

Get the Lead out of School - Drinking Water Act Notification

In 2022, the Missouri legislature passed the Get the Lead out of School Drinking Water Act (RSMo 160.077), which sets standards for lead concentrations in school drinking water. The law requires schools to conduct inventory, sampling, remediation, and monitoring at all potable drinking water outlets used or potentially be used for drinking, food preparation, and cooking or cleaning utensils. The deadline under the law is August of 2024, and testing at Rolla Public Schools will in late fall of 2023.

Under the law, results are communicated directly with families within 7 days (via the email they have on file). Results are also required to be posted on the district website and reported to the Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS). DHSS is currently developing reporting methods and procedures.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) currently has a lead drinking water standard limit of 15 micrograms per liter (ug/L) of lead in water. However, Missouri law requires that all  Missouri schools achieve a 5 ug/L limit of lead in water. 

Results will be posted on this page once they are available. Please contact Dr. Monica Fulton, Assistant Superintendent, at 573-458-0100 with any questions about this information.
