Water Quality Update

 

We want all of our students to be healthy and safe—so we’ve ensured that all of our drinking fountains and sinks are safe to use.

 

Last year our school district had all schools and buildings tested for lead levels in the water. Samples were collected from all taps used for drinking water and food preparation and sent to professional labs for analysis. The initial results showed that some of our school’s water faucets had elevated lead levels, above 20 parts per billion (ppb), and these faucets were immediately taken out of use.

 

The district replaced all of these fixtures across the district and retested the water. In a few cases, additional actions were needed to eliminate the source of elevated lead. This has now been completed and the follow-up test results show normal levels. All of our water fixtures are safe to use.

 

More information about water quality is available on the district website at www.4j.lane.edu/water. Please call or email me if you have any questions.
