The district’s water quality assurance process is now complete at Churchill. All of our drinking fountains and sinks are safe to use.
Last summer 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).
The fixtures were replaced and the water was retested. 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. The 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.
