(This amendment provides funding for the Virginia Department of Health to handle plans and test results of lead water testing pursuant to Senate Bill 1629. Current law requires each local school board to develop and implement a plan to test and, if necessary, remediate potable water from sources identified by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency as high priority for testing with priority in the testing plan given to schools whose school building was constructed, in whole or in part, before 1986. The bill adds the requirement for the local school board to submit the testing plan and report the results of any such test to the Department of Health.)
