Seattle school water gets clean.

A new policy in Seattle ensures all schools have some of the cleanest school drinking water in the U.S., worth more than $12 million over three years.

The Seattle School Board recently approved the policy which has Superintendent Raj Manhas reporting in March how he will execute the plan. It also establishes a citizen-oversight committee and ensures future levies to get more money to pay for water-quality projects.

The plan should correct the lead found in one quarter of the fountains districtwide.
