Spokane schools’ water meets lead standards

Spokane Public Schools’ drinking water meets state and federal standards for water quality, according to a district news release.

Anatek Labs in Spokane tested 54 district schools between April 30 and May 2 for lead and copper levels. Initial results indicated that all schools were below the levels allowed by state and federal law, the release said.

Bryant Campus had the highest level of lead at 13.7 parts per billion, while Audubon Elementary had the second-highest at 11.30 parts per billion. The federal “action level” for lead is 15 parts per billion. To see individual school results go here.

More testing will be conducted over the course of the next several weeks.
