We completed lead testing of more than 2,300 interior water fixtures (sinks and drinking fountains) at all District 200 student sites in January 2017. All of the results were below the Federal lead in water standard. We are also sending some of our samples to an independent laboratory to validate our findings.
As we shared with you in December, after working with our municipal partners, we confirmed that all our incoming water sources are free of any lead. Earlier this fall, District 200 proactively began testing interior water fixtures at all student sites.
Since we began our testing, the State of Illinois has adopted Public Act 099-0922 Lead in Water. We are reviewing the new statute and will comply with any of those standards. However, the new statute will eventually require districts to post results of water testing. Below you will find our detailed report of testing at all school sites.
