Lead Testing in Schools

In recent months there have been incidents where lead has been found in drinking water in a variety of cities and public buildings. Though there is no state or federal regulation or mandate that requires schools to test for lead (unless the school district provides the water), our Environmental Services Department staff felt it would be a good, proactive measure to test our drinking water sources because a healthy, safe environment for our students and staff in our schools is a priority.

As a result, the Environmental Services Department has been testing all drinking water sources in schools and facilities for lead levels over the summer. You can read more information about testing and lead exposure, as well as view results for individual schools as they are completed. You may also view the presentation and update on testing efforts given at the July 28 Board of Education Study Session.
