Free Lead-In-Water Testing for Child Care Facilities

The State of Oregon now requires all licensed and Department of Human Services (DHS) regulated child care facilities to test for lead once every six years using a state Health Agency-accredited laboratory and take mitigation actions if lead levels are detected at or above 15 parts per billion (ppb).

The first round of lead testing at all Oregon licensed and DHS regulated child care facilities is required to be complete by September 30, 2018.

New child care facilities opening after September 30, 2018, will need to test for lead in order to receive a license or DHS certification.

The City of Hillsboro Water Department provides free lead-in-water test kits for all of its residential customers, including registered or licensed child care facilities in the Hillsboro Water Department’s service area.
