Lead in water sample at East Lansing school

Posted at 8:07 AM, Jan 21, 2016

East Lansing school administrators are meeting with county health officials today to talk about the lead found in water at one of its elementary schools.

The Lansing State Journal reports a water sample taken from a classroom faucet at Glencairn Elementary shows an elevated lead level.

A letter sent home last night to parents says the district had the faucet tested after noticing a note on it that it should be flushed several minutes each day to reduce lead levels.

The water to the faucet has been turned off.

The district is going to have the pipe and faucet replaced.
