  • Results of Lab Tested Water Samples from Highland Park High School

    Water sample lab tests indicate that three fixtures at Highland Park High School, one fixture in the auditorium lobby, one fixture  outside of A342, and one fixture near the dance studio had indications of lead levels higher than the EPA’s action level. All of the fixtures that had indications on any test of elevated levels of lead above the EPA’s action level have been taken out of service and those water sources will undergo correction and further testing.
