Body

On October 24, 2017 the district received the results from the most recent water lead testing. The sampling reflects the results of water outlets where remediation efforts were undertaken such as the replacement of faucets or the installation of water filters. At the elementary schools, all of the results came back below the action level of 15 parts per billion.  At the middle school, three outlets still exceed the action level with another six remaining at the high school.  The district will be working with our consultant on the next level of remediation for these outlets.  Until such time as test results show these outlets are below the action level they will remain out of service.   The results of the retesting are summarized below:
