Resampling results for water testing at Scotchtown
April 11, 2017 - In
October, the district received results of the mandatory water testing at
Scotchtown Avenue. Of the 141 samples drawn, six tested above the
allowable 15 ug/L as per new regulations.
Of the six faucets, three were located in classrooms
and are only used for hand washing and cleaning purposes and two were
located in bathrooms. A sign stating “Non Potable Water, Do Not Drink”
(in English and Spanish) with a symbol relaying the same message was
posted immediately at all six locations.
The fixtures were tested again on February 23
following remediation of these fixtures, and the results
found that all samples, for the six remediated
locations, were below action levels. Remediation
included the replacement of the six individual
fixtures, including the associated individual
isolation valves and feed lines.
The previously posted cautionary signage for those fixtures has been
removed and those fixtures returned to normal use.
