The law directs the Washington State Department of Ecology in cooperation with the Department of Social and Health Services, The Department of Health, the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction, and local health departments, to assist schools and childcares west of the crest of the Cascade mountains to reduce the potential for children's exposure to area-wide soil contamination.
