EPA on Drinking Water

This one-stop EPA site provides information about drinking water quality in schools and child care facilities. Ensuring drinking water quality at these facilities is important because that’s where children spend their day, and they are likely to drink water while they are there. Consuming enough fluids on a daily basis is important for children’s health. Water is a great choice because:

  • it doesn’t contain the calories, caffeine, or sugar that may be found in other beverages, and
  • it helps nearly every part of the human body function efficiently.
