National events about lead exposure have generated new concerns for Pennsylvanians related to the safety of their homes and water. The Departments of Health (DOH) and Environmental Protection (DEP) both work diligently to protect children from lead exposure and have many resources available for residents to learn more and take action on lead.
As a public water system, Otto-Eldred High School is required to perform a lead test every three years. We are pleased to announce that a level of 0.0 parts per billion were detected in the Otto-Eldred HS public water system as of the September 2019 test results. Please read the official notification.
Although not an independent water system, testing was also performed at the Otto-Eldred Elementary School. A trace amount was detected (<.001 mg/L) was detected, far below the maximum limit of .015 mg/L. Please see the elementary notice.
