With news about unhealthy levels of lead in drinking water across the country, have you been wondering about Tukwila schools?
We did a comprehensive test of all schools in 2006, and the results came back with no indication of lead or arsenic. Because the city has such a high-quality water supply (tested and confirmed to have no known lead or other contaminants) and our pipes are all up to standard with no changes, we are fairly confident about the continuity of safe water in schools. However, to be absolutely certain, our Maintenance and Operations team is going to do another round of comprehensive testing early this fall. We will announce the results community wide.
