Clover Park School District announcement.
LAKEWOOD, Wash. — Clover Park School District has been testing for and lowering lead levels in school water since 2016 following Environmental Protection Agency standards. The state of Washington has set a new standard that applies to test results from the past five years. We are revisiting our past test results so that we can meet the state’s new limit.
We have developed a plan to lower lead levels. When levels are above 5 parts per billion (ppb), we will take one or more of these steps over the next six months:
- Remove water outlet from service, replace water outlet and retest
- Clean or replace aerator screen at tap
- Install filters at problem taps
- Flush taps regularly
- Post out-of-service signs on faucets
- Replace pipe and retest
- Communicate with the Department of Health after remediation steps are taken for retesting
We need your feedback. Provide your input on this plan by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Please submit your feedback by Sunday, April 10. The Clover Park School District Board of Directors will vote on the plan at its April 11 meeting. For more information on the health effects of lead, visit the Centers for Disease Control and/or Environmental Protection Agency websites.
