(Crystal A. Proxmire, April 27, 2016)

Oakland County, MI – As they see the images of children in Flint lined up to get bottled water or crying over blood tests, people around the country have been wondering about the safety of the water they and their families use on a day to day basis to cook, clean, bathe and drink.  Parents, teachers and advocates have also been calling for testing of the water in schools.

When lead and copper are issues, it is often caused by old pipes or old fixtures.  Even when old baby modern natural 01 adfixtures are there, corrosion control in the water helps protect users.  But testing is the best way to know if the protections are working or not.

After learning that Oakland Schools had put out an RFP for water testing, the oc115 contacted school districts from throughout Oakland County to find out where they stand on testing.  Click on the link to be taken to the page for each district’s responses.  If there is no link than the response is not yet posted.

This will be updated as more responses come in.
