The following outlines in more detail the results of the preliminary testing and the steps being taken to address the high lead and copper results.


Centennial

No issues found.

Preliminary Results


Scio Middle School

Currently, we have 7 showers that have come back high in lead. We believe that it is from lack of use. Because the showers are not intended to be used for drinking water, we will be removing the shower heads and aerating the lines and retesting before we start the mitigation process.

For Lead

1 shower head in the boys locker room .0252 mg/l, the action level is .20. All the shower heads in the girls locker room and coaches office .0248 to .0499 mg/l, acion level is .20.

Because the boys locker room in the main building is past due for upgrades and all the plumbing is exposed, we will also be looking at redoing the plumbing in the locker room.
