Lead Content in Drinking Water
The District has been actively moving towards the Interior Health Authority (IHA) mandate of less than 0.005 mg/L lead in school drinking water. To achieve this, the District has installed filters at each expected point of use for drinking water that exceeded the acceptable threshold.
IHA has accepted a temporary measure while our lead mitigation strategy is put in place; it allows for use of a drinking source if a 30 sec flush produces results are below the 0.005 mg/L mandate. We have posted notification on each source in the District that still requires a flush to remind users of this practice. Any expected drinking source that does not meet the mandate even after a 30-second flush has been shut off until lead mitigation can be installed. Once installed, further testing will take place to determine the result of this mitigation before re-opening the source.
