Water Testing Results: Bierbaum Elementary School

SCI collected 51 drinking water samples from various water fixtures located throughout the structure and submitted them for analytical testing. The water samples were analyzed for lead in accordance with the “Get the Lead Out of School Drinking Water Act,” Section 160.077, which establishes an action level of 5 parts per billion (ppb). The 5 ppb level required by the state is a stricter threshold than the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) recommended action level of 15 ppb.

The drinking water samples that exceeded the state's new action level are identified below.

Notes: Kitchen handwashing sink was used for handwashing only. Room sinks and water fountains are not often used for drinking water. Students and staff most often utilize water bottle fillers.

The water fixtures listed above will be labeled not for drinking until the district’s facilities team can complete remediation and SCI completes retesting. This page will be updated as we make progress remediating fixtures.
