The bill would appropriate up to $20 million from the societal benefits charge (commonly referred to as the "Clean Energy Fund") to the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) to pay the costs of remediation of elevated lead levels found in drinking water in public buildings. Funds would be disbursed to public entities at the discretion and prioritization of the DEP in consultation with the Department of Education, the Department of Health, and the Department of the Treasury, upon receipt of appropriate documentation and receipts for the cost of the lead abatement. Lead in drinking water comes from lead soldering, lead pipes, and leaded brass faucets. Too much lead in the human body can damage the nervous system, brain, and kidneys.
