Assembly Bill 2370 (AB 2370) requires that licensed child day care centers which are located in a building constructed before January 1, 2010 test their drinking water prior to January 1, 2023. This requirement does not apply to Family Child Care Centers.
If lead in water exceeds the Action Level of 5 ppb, AB 2370 requires centers to immediately make inoperable and cease using the affected fountains and notify all parents and guardians of results.
The California Department of Social Services (CDSS) has created an informational website on Lead Testing and Prevention in accordance with AB 2370. On July 28, 2021, a Provider Information Notice (PIN-21-21-CCP) was published with detailed information on testing requirements. The PIN also includes the External Water Sampler Certification Form and Child Care Center Sampling Checklist Form.
The Program requires that a certified external water sampler collect samples at the Child Care Centers. MAI does not provide this service. However, the CDSS website provides a sampler directory.
