Drinking Water Analysis

Governor Rauner signed SB 0550 on January 16, 2017. The statute requires pre-K through grade five schools to test for lead in water used for drinking and cooking by December 31, 2017. Benjamin School District 25 hired Environmental Services, Inc. to test the water at both schools for lead content. Per the statute, the analytical results we just received are posted on the district's website and are being submitted to the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Please see the two attachments for details.
