Get the Lead Out of Schools

In 2022, Missouri Legislation took a step forward to reduce lead exposure in Missouri children by passing the Get the Lead out of School Drinking Water Act (Section 160.077, RSMo). This Act sets a new standard in Missouri for lead concentrations in school drinking water which is lower than the lead action level set nationally by the Environmental Protection Agency for public water systems. The Act requires schools to conduct inventory, sampling, remediation, and monitoring at all drinking water outlets used or potentially used for drinking, food preparation, and cooking or cleaning utensils in a school building.

Branson Public Schools has completed the process of testing all of our schools. The district has tested all water fountains, bottle fillers, and sources of cooking water in all buildings.

More resources on lead and exposure can be found on the Centers For Disease Control website.
