LASD Water Testing Results
Given recent concerns regarding drinking water safety, we made the decision to test our City drinking water throughout the school district. The City is responsible for testing the water they provide to the community. We are required to test our pool water and drinking water coming from wells.
Ludington Area School District tested 51 taps, and two of the 51 exceeded the threshold for parts per million of lead. Both taps testing over the threshold were taken out of service, and replaced with lead-free fixtures.
Meanwhile, we continue to replace old water fountains with modern fountains which allow the public to fill water bottles. We have at least one of these stations in each of our school buildings, and they have already saved nearly 100,000 water bottles from going to landfills.
