WATER ACCESS IN MASSACHUSETTS

 

 

 

 Students, parents, teachers, or other administrative officials may want to learn about the quality of the water within their school, especially if the school is in an older building.


 Schools are responsible for providing safe drinking water. Drinking water comes into the school facilities from either (a) a public water supplier (e.g., water utilities or water suppliers, such as cities, towns, and water districts) or (b) an on-site water system (e.g., a well).


 In the United States, most school districts (80%) get their drinking water from a community or municipal source. There are different testing requirements for schools depending on the source of the drinking water.
