Nevada Division of Environmental Protection program is open to all licensed child care providers in Nevada.
A new lead testing project is now available to all child care centers in Nevada.
The Nevada Lead Testing Program is part of a nationwide initiative funded by federal grants to test the drinking water in schools and child care centers for lead to reduce children’s exposure to lead in drinking water.
The State has partnered with the consulting firm TruePani Inc. to manage and coordinate the program. A member of the program team will be reaching out to your facility directly to provide more information on the project and your opportunity to enroll. Outreach to all child care centers in Nevada will happen on a rolling basis through 2024. If you would like to participate sooner in the program, you can sign up here.
The Nevada Lead Testing Program is supported by a US EPA grant to the Nevada Division of Environmental Protection (NDEP). The Nevada Division of Public and Behavioral Health, and the Washoe County Health District are partners in the project. The grant from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency was established by the 2016 Water Infrastructure Improvements for the Nation (WIIN) Act.
