Updated Sapphire Elementary water testing results

on August 24, 2021

Following the initial water testing completed at Sapphire Elementary School in February, a second series of tests was performed in June to determine whether further remediation was required. Those results were reported on June 24. In February, 17 fixtures were identified as exceeding the action level of 15 micrograms of lead per liter. Retesting those fixtures identified seven that will require additional remediation. The remaining fixtures all tested below the action level. Those action level fixtures will continue to be posted with signs indicating that they cannot be used for drinking while additional remediation options are evaluated.
