Lead in Water Testing Schedule and Results

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) has established an “action level” for fixtures with lead concentrations that exceed 15 parts per billion (0.015 milligrams per liter).  However, the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) requires that schools notify parents in of any sample that exceeds 5 ppb. All tests have been conducted by an Illinois Environmental Protection Agency (IEPA)-accredited laboratory.  

Samples from the following locations and sources exceed 5 ppb:
