After school officials announced they would test school water for lead in 2016, they decided to install filters instead. But the school district has yet to sign a contract with a filter company.
Last fall, school officials announced plans to test water for lead at 10 schools. The city water board argued they should allow more lead in the water before taking action, and a testing consultant wondered whether the water board would challenge his results. The test plans were dropped in favor of filters, which haven’t been installed yet.
