What is the Lead Contamination Control Act (LCCA)?

In 1988, Congress passed the Lead Contamination Control Act (LCCA) that further amended the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA). The LCCA is aimed at the identification and reduction of lead in drinking water at schools and day care centers. The amendment requires the EPA to provide guidance to states and localities to test for and remedy lead contamination in drinking water in schools and day care centers. It also contains specific requirements for the testing, recall, repair and/or replacement of water coolers with lead lined storage tanks or with parts containing lead and attaches civil and criminal penalties for the manufacture and sale or water coolers containing lead.
