House Bill 4342


The act requires child care centers to post a “conspicuous sign” near water outlets and drinking water fountains with information on whether or not the water is for human consumption. It includes standards to meet for filtering lead from drinking water, as well as making testing results to the public and parents of children enrolled at the center. In addition, assistance and training will be provided to child care centers to stay in compliance with the drinking water management plan requirements created in Section 3i (included in SB 88).

The act took effect along with Michigan SB 88 and HB 4341.
