In recent test results taken at the Triad Schools Athletic Building on June 19th 2019, lead in levels exceeding the federal/state action level were detected. Lead can cause serious health problems, especially for pregnant women and young children. Triad Athletic Building was required to take 5 samples this monitoring period and 1 of the 5 samples collected are above 15 micrograms/L.
Triad Schools is working with Ohio EPA to correct this issue. We have removed the fixtures that tested avobe 15 micrograms/L from service. We will also be testing the water for corrosivity and developing and implementing corrosion treatment.
Lead typically enters the water primarily as a result of corrosion, or wearing away, of materials containing lead in the water distribution system and household plumbing. There are steps the public can take to reduce their lead exposure, which include running the water for 30 seconds to 3 minutes (or until it is noticeably colder) before using it for drinking, cooking, or preparing baby formula.
