The Bay Village City School District recently had water in all five school buildings tested to insure that the drinking water was safe. Results show no detectable levels of lead in any of the samples and only trace amounts of copper, which is considered normal.
Superintendent Clint Keener said he asked that the testing be done because many reports in the national news media were showing that lead levels in water were a problem in many schools. “This information can give ‘peace of mind’ for our parents and employees,” he said.
Tests were performed by the National Testing Laboratories, Ltd., based in Ypsilanti, Michigan. Water samples were taken from Bay High School, Bay Middle School, Westerly Elementary School, Normandy Elementary School, and Glenview Center for Childcare and Learning.
The analytical reports on the samples can be found on the district’s website at www.bayvillageschools.com/WaterTests.
