We're crowdsourcing safe drinking water in New York City's parks and playgrounds.
No level of lead is considered safe. The EPA action level is 15 PPB (parts per billion). Above 400 PPB can cause brain damage from a single drink.
We’ll send you instructions to get a free lead test kit and walk you through the process of getting scientifically accurate samples from a fountain.
After getting results back from the lab, our mobile-friendly web-form will let you upload the data to our public map.
Each time someone uploads a test result, it shows everyone where it’s safe to drink. With enough volunteers we can map all the drinking fountains across the city.
Sign up to test a public fountain near you. Next steps will be emailed to you promptly!
