District 88 conducts voluntary water testing

At District 88, the safety, health and well-being of students and staff is the No. 1 priority.

As part of that focus, the district recently worked with Aires Consulting to complete voluntary water testing in the district’s three buildings (Addison Trail High School, Willowbrook High School and the District 88 Office). While this was not a requirement, District 88 elected to conduct testing as a proactive step to ensure its water is safe for consumption and meets the standards and laws regarding lead concentration. Sinks, drinking fountains and ice machines designed to provide water used for human consumption and food preparation were assessed.

WHAT ARE THE STANDARDS?
In January 2017, Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner signed into law a requirement that Illinois public schools and day care centers constructed before the year 2000 that serve students up to fifth grade complete lead testing of drinking water sources. Under the law, known as Public Act 099-0922 Lead in Water Testing (LWT), any sample that tests above 5 parts per billion (ppb) will require school administrators to notify parents/guardians. That standard is a reduction from the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) regulation, which states the action level for concentration of lead in public water systems is 15 ppb.

WHAT WERE THE RESULTS FOR DISTRICT 88? WHAT ACTIONS WILL BE TAKEN BASED ON THOSE RESULTS?
Each location/device listed below was tested twice, in accordance with the law. To view the full results, click on the links below or the PDFs at the bottom of this page.
