On September 14, 2014, Woods School participated in a lead and copper sampling, as part of our annual water monitoring requirement for 2014. Only one sample taken came back with an elevated level of lead. This faucet was removed from service until problem rectified. We have taken corrective action to rectify the problem with the faucet. On October 22, 2014 a second sample was taken from the same location resulting having acceptable levels. The results from both sampling have been posted in the facility and will remain there.
All of the remaining samples as well as the Corrosion Control Study conducted have all not only been completed but show no signs of any non-compliance of issues within our well or water system. All of our plumbing & faucets are compliant with “non-lead” components. We believe it was an “errant” sample not representative of the drinking water system at all.
An informational brochure, the effects of lead and copper, is available in the school’s office.
We are on a continual lead and copper sampling to ensure the safety of all students and staff.
This posting is part of our requirement by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources.
