Schools: Air and Water Quality

Take action to improve children's health! EPA's comprehensive schools website offers all the resources you need to establish, maintain, or enhance a school environmental health program.

The air we breathe and water we drink are two important elements to address in schools to ensure students, teachers and school employees have healthy learning and working environments. This is especially critical for children. Since their bodily systems are still maturing, they are more likely to be affected by poor air and water quality than the general population. This section offers information to help assess and improve the air and water in schools.
