Lead in Water Sampling - Licensed Day Care Providers – Provisions in SB-550 mandate testing for lead in drinking water for licensed day care centers. All day care centers have recently received notice of the testing requirements from the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH). Licensed day care centers constructed prior to January 1, 2000 will have specific testing protocols they will need to follow.


Public Water Suppliers should be prepared to field questions and/or provide assistance, as appropriate, if you provide water to licensed day care centers. It is expected many owners of these facilities will have questions related to how to properly take these water samples.

ISAWWA is providing a link to the IDPH regulation on our website where three (3) daycare center documents have been added as well as the ISAWWA Daycare Lead Fact Sheet.
