In light of concerns of possible unsafe levels of lead in the water of area school districts, Brecksville-Broadview Heights Schools Director of Business Services Chris Coad contacted both the Cuyahoga County Board of Health and City of Cleveland’s Division of Water and was assured that random water samplings are routinely done throughout the county. The findings consistently verify that the area’s water supply is safe for public use.
Additionally, Coad hired Summit Environmental Technologies, an independent firm, to test each school’s water supply. Their findings revealed the water in each building is well below the EPA established limit of .015 milligrams per liter (mg/L) for lead. Coad recently reported the results to the Board and was asked to share results with the community.
