The Navy is in the process of testing drinking water at all of its Child Development Centers, Child Development Group Homes, Youth Centers, and Schools. This testing is recommended by EPA in schools and day care centers but is not required. However, in the interest of the health and welfare of the children using its facilities, the Navy has adopted a policy to perform the testing. For more information on the testing please visit the CNIC Lead in Priority Area Sampling Program page.
As part of telling you about lead in drinking water at priority areas, links are provided on the General Information and Facts page that contain information on general water quality (Consumer Confidence Reports) at Navy installations, sources of lead in the environment, potential sources of lead in schools, lead facts for parents, a lead public health fact sheet, procedures to minimize lead exposure from drinking water, and an EPA fact sheet and FAQs document on lead in schools and child care facilities, as well as other important information.
The U.S. Naval Hospital Naples Environmental Health Officer and the Public Works Environmental division can provide additional informaiton on the effects of lead in drinking water and the installation's water supply. Review the Fact Sheet below for additional information and contact numbers. If you have any health questions or concerns, we encourage you to call your health care provider.
