Final Lead Testing Results for Brookwood Elementary School

10/5/16

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

On September 21, we provided you with preliminary lead testing results for Brookwood Elementary School, which indicated that the first draw samples from 11 of the 74 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 11 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.
