Lead Testing At Lincoln County Schools Update

Director of Support Services Rich Belloni shared information on the status of lead testing in LCSD. Every sink, drinking fountain and bubbler in every school has been tested, and all results have been received at this time. The allowable lead concentration for schools is 0.0200 mg/L; corrective actions are taken on all results at or above this value.

All fixtures that returned action level results have been taken out of service for fixture replacement and retesting. All retest results are scheduled to be received prior to the start of school. We encourage people to learn about lead in drinking water. The following website is a resource for this that provides information on the levels and health effects: https://www.epa.gov/ground-water-and-drinking-water/basic-information-about-lead-drinkingwater. Information and test results are on file at the Lincoln County School District Facilities and Maintenance Department (541) 336-2058.
