Healthy Schools and Air and Water Quality

Addressing the air we breathe and water we drink in schools is important to ensure that students, teachers and employees have healthy learning and working environments. This is especially critical for children. Since their bodies are still maturing, children are more likely to be affected by poor air and water quality than adults. This website provides information to help you assess and improve air and water quality in schools.  EPA's comprehensive healthy schools website offers additional resources for establishing, maintaining, or enhancing a school environmental health program.
