Final Lead Testing Results for Eastwood Elementary School

10/11/16

To the students, staff and parents of Eastwood Elementary School,

On October 5, we provided you with preliminary lead testing results for Eastwood Elementary School, which indicated that the first draw samples from 3 of the 58 possible sources of drinking water in the school showed elevated levels of lead. Those water sources were removed from service while the second samples were tested. We now have results from the second samples, which show that all three water sources have lead concentrations below the EPA’s recommended action level of 20 parts per billion (ppb). As an extra measure of precaution, the fixtures at these locations will be replaced before the water sources are returned to service.

Water sources with initial results showing elevated lead levels:

  • Kindergarten, Sink Faucet at West Wall – CLEAR
  • Activity Room in Grades 3 & 4 Pod, West Sink Faucet – CLEAR
  • Library, Center Area, Sink Faucet – CLEAR
