Get The Lead Out

Lead Testing in School Drinking Water

In order to be compliant with the Missouri law known as “Get the Lead out of School Drinking Water Act,” the Newburg R-II School District conducted sampling and testing of all potential drinking water sources in the school. The results of the water testing are in the link below. We tested 22 sources in the district and found two to have higher limits than allowed by law.  As part of our remediation plan, the district will be posting signage in those two areas noting that they are not a source of drinking water while we work on remediating the problem.  The testing was conducted by OCCU-TEC.  The remediation plan recommendations are included in their report.
