North Kitsap School District releases lead testing results
Posted September 15
BREMERTON, Wash. — The North Kitsap School District has released results from lead testing that show further testing is needed at only seven sinks in two buildings, which have been closed for several years.
The Kitsap Sun reports (http://bit.ly/2czk5b0 ) the tests showed two sinks at Breidablik Elementary School and five sinks at the Spectrum building in Kingston had lead levels that called for additional testing under state and federal guidelines. Breidablik has been closed for three years due to low enrollment, and the Spectrum building has been unoccupied for at least four years.
The district's testing collected a total of 433 water samples over the summer.
District officials say the seven problem fixtures represent less than 1 percent of the district's water sources. They say they're working to correct the problems.
