Help CPHA With HB17-1306: Drinking Water Lead Testing At Public Schools

Posted: June 13, 2017

Meeting notice 

We are seeking input for the development of a grant program for lead testing at eligible public schools. We are holding meetings to inform and solicit feedback on the proposed rule, including the project prioritization system that will be used to distribute available funds. 

Please join our email list to receive updates. In the future, we will only send to those who have signed up on this list.   

Meeting details
June 22, 2017 (2-4 p.m.)
June 28, 2017 (1-3 p.m.)
July 20, 2017 (1-3 p.m.) (to discuss the final proposal to the Water Quality Control Commission)

The first two webinars are the same information. The third and final webinar is when we will discuss the final proposal to the commission based on comments received. 

Meeting materials -  Materials to be discussed at the meeting are available on our website

Rulemaking hearing
The Colorado General Assembly passed legislation (HB17-1306) to establish a lead testing program to assist public schools with conducting lead testing within the school’s drinking water system. As a result, we are seeking stakeholder feedback and input for a lead testing in public schools grant program. Stakeholder input will be incorporated into a proposal for the Water Quality Control Commission. The commission will conduct a rulemaking hearing on November 13, 2017 to consider amendments to the existing rules of the Water Quality Improvement Fund (Regulation 55). The amendments to Regulation 55 will establish criteria for the award of grants to complete lead testing.

If you have questions regarding the grant program, please contact:
