Elevated Lead Levels

February 28, 2017

This past year there have been multiple reports of elevated lead levels in our drinking water throughout the country.  Adams 12 schools has begun to voluntarily test water supplies in their schools.  They have started to release those reports on the web site and when they have found elevated levels they have stopped using those water sources.  Multiple schools have had isolated drinking water sources identified as high.  The EPA sets standards for how much lead is safe at 15 parts per billion.  You can look in school results at http://www.adams12.org/departments/facilities/water-sampling-results

Our office as yet to identify an children with elevated lead levels, however if you have questions you should contact your pediatrician for further guidance.
