Water testing results – Pine Island Elementary and Sanfordville Elementary

August 2, 2021

Water testing in June 2021 found that two faucets at Pine Island Elementary School were under the state’s allowable measure of 15 micrograms of lead per liter, typically referred to as “parts per billion (ppb).” The faucets, which were not at any of the school’s drinking fountains but at classroom sinks, had been recently changed to stainless steel.   All building faucets are now within state guidelines and are safe for normal use.

Water testing in May 2021 found that five faucets tested at Sanfordville Elementary School were also under the state’s allowable measure of 15 micrograms of lead per liter. The faucets were a coach’s bathroom sink, a kitchen prep sink, a classroom sink, a nurse’s room sink, and an office kitchen sink. They had been recently changed to stainless steel. All building faucets are now within state guidelines and are safe for normal use. Sanfordville Report

The District is awaiting the results from water testing performed at the Middle School. It is also scheduling water retesting at the High School. In addition, the District is currently changing failed faucets at the former Kings Elementary School building. Once the faucets are changed at Kings, the building will be retested.
