Our schools are tested every 5 years as recommended by the Department of Health (see schedule here
) and now required by MN Statute 121A.335. We've been doing this since 2005, long before legislation required it in 2018. While it doesn't happen often, whenever a drinking fixture tests high for lead, we immediately shut the fixture off and replace it with a lead free fixture. We then have the fixture retested to ensure its safe before turning the water back on.
On June 11, 2018, our School Board adopted the Department of Health and Department of Education's Model Plan for reducing lead in drinking water in schools (here
). This plan shares specifics about our lead in water program.
If you'd like to request test results, or need more information on the district's lead in water program, please contact Health and Safety Coordinator Dan Roeser via email
