On January 2018, Assembly Bill (AB) 746 became effective statewide. It requires all public schools constructed before January 1, 2010, serving grades K-12, preschools, and child care facilities located on public school property to test for soluble (dissolved) lead in their drinking water fixtures on or before January 1, 2019. State and Federal standards are that lead levels may not exceed Action Level (AL) of 15 parts per billion (ppb).
The City of Beverly Hills in partnership with the BHUSD assisted schools within its service area to sample water drinking fountains. The independent lab results show that all BHUSD schools are in compliance with State and Federal standards.
