: Any service outlet that exceeds EPA’s lead action
level of 15 ppb will be immediately shut down or removed from service and additional sampling/investigation will be initiated.
Potential Interim Remedies: Shut down or remove problem outlets from student and employee use. Provide bottled drinking water or mobile potable water tanks (if facility-wide or multiple problem outlets remediation is necessary).
Potential Permanent Remedies:
Replace piping and/or fixtures contributing to lead in
Reconfigure plumbing to bypass lead sources
Install and maintain reverse osmosis units (i.e. filters or point of use devices) at affected outlets
Find alternate grounding for electrical wires that are grounded to water pipes
Install and operate automatic flushing systems
