Welcome to the homepage of the California State Water Resources Control Boards lead in drinking water testing assistance program for Child Care Centers (CCCs). The assistance program is funded by the State of California to help licensed child care providers meet the new lead in drinking water requirements for their facility as set out in Assembly Bill 2370 (AB 2370). Free sampling services are provided directly by the Assistance Team lead by the Office of Water Programs (OWP) at California State University, Sacramento (Sacramento State). Please note that we are not authorized to reimburse sampling costs incurred by CCCs. This website will help guide CCC providers through the assistance program process.

Use the Provider Portal to complete the Eligibility Form for your facility. Once your facility is prioritized, use the Provider Portal to track your status.
