Senate Bill 88


The act establishes a requirement for child care centers to develop and maintain a drinking water management plan to reduce exposure to lead contamination in drinking water. Very similar to the program created in MI HB 4341. The act requires child care centers to show where filtered faucets, bottle-filling stations, and pitchers will be located, as well as unfiltered locations. The centers must review and update their plans at least every 5 years, and the filtered water must be sampled and tested at least every 2 years. If a concentration of more than 5ppb of lead is found, the water outlet must be made inoperable and a sign posted nearby that there is a high concentration of lead in the water.

The act took effect along with Michigan HB 4341 and HB 4342.
