Should the HSE / Irish Water be testing Irish schools and kindergartens for lead in water?In about-face, Hong Kong authorities decide to run tests at public schools as lead-in-water scare continues | South China Morning Post

Officials on Tuesday made a U-turn and announced they would conduct tests on lead levels in water at kindergartens and new schools as pupils returned for the new academic year.

The decision follows alarm over the discovery of excessive levels of lead in tap water at two schools, amid widespread concern over similar findings at public housing estates.

During a special Legislative Council meeting on Tuesday, Chief Secretary Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor announced that 980 kindergartens would be the top priority in the water tests, as children under the age of six were the most vulnerable to lead.
