Final lead testing results
According to Lincoln County Schools Support Services Rich Belloni every very sink, drinking fountain and bubbler in every school has been tested, and any necessary repairs have been completed. “We are ready for school to start, and have placed student and staff safety at the forefront as we conducted tests and repairs,” said Mr. Belloni.
The district has conducted over 1400 tests. However, some locker rooms, science labs and wash sinks have been posted as non-drinking water; all other fixtures meet federal and state health standards.
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:
