Water Testing Results for All Schools:
Two taps at the Forestdale school had results that exceeded the action level for lead on the "first draw" sample, but were below it on the flush sample. Those specific results are below. All taps at both schools tested below the action levels for copper.

The administration takes these results very seriously and is moving immediately to safeguard the health of the students, faculty and staff. Both of the taps that tested positive for lead were removed from service on January 5, 2017, the day the results were received from MassDEP. Those faucets will be replaced, and the water from them will be resampled prior to putting them back into service. The High School samples were collected later in the month, and the results have not been received yet. Should any of those results come in above Mass DEP action levels, the district will take similar immediate action.
