Phase I (2017-2018)

LEAD SAMPLING PROGRAM

The Indiana Finance Authority "IFA", with assistance from the Indiana Department of Environmental Management (“IDEM”), developed the 2017-2018 Lead Sampling Program for Public Schools to help schools assess if there was a presence of lead in drinking water within their facilities.

UPDATES

The 2017-2018 sampling at participating schools has concluded. Through this program, IFA sampled over 915 school buildings state wide, representing 60% of Indiana's public school students. Please read our Lead Sampling Program Final Report for more details.
