While schools in Pennsylvania are not required to test for the presence of lead in potable water systems, the Waynesboro Area School District does perform such a test on water systems in our schools.
Annually the district tests water for the presence of lead from all school buildings per Act 39 of 2018. When a test results in lead presence greater than 15 parts per billion, that water source is closed for drinking and cooking purposes. The district then implements a mitigation process for that water source.
The district then follows the Act 39 of 2018 requirements by posting that information on the website and notifying the Pennsylvania Department of Education.
