Re: Drinking Water Findings for Lead

From: Larry Glaze, Superintendent

La Grande School District tested all fixtures used for drinking water and food preparation.  All testing was monitored by Table Rock Analytical Labs in Pendleton, Oregon. About 300 fixtures were tested within the District.  The findings were as follows:

Willow School

Mrs Huntington’s room has a hand washing fixture that tested over the safe limits.  Both fixtures in the sink will be replaced.  The water is currently shut off to the sink and bottled water will be provided until the situation is corrected. Hand washing will be done in another location of the school.

High School Locker Rooms

One drinking fountain in the boys and the girls locker room were found to exceed safe limits.  Each drinking fountain is now turned off.  The fixtures will be replaced and water will be re-tested.  A second drinking fountain is available in each locker room.

All other fixtures in La Grande School District that were tested have been determined to be within safe limits.

Please see testing results below:
