As reported in early June, the district committed to testing all water taps used for drinking or food preparation on school property. We have the results back from Umpqua Research Company and every site passed with excellent results.
In fact, when I spoke with an analyst from Umpqua Research Company, he stated we had great water with excellent results. Due to these positive results, the district will not be replacing any plumbing infrastructure or fixtures. The district will continue to work with the guidance from the Oregon Department of Education for future recommendation on the testing for lead in our water supply.
Thank you for your continued support of 509-J schools,
Rick Molitor, Superintendent
