Water Quality Testing Results

Creswell School District is taking precautionary steps to ensure safe water supplies, so we proactively chose to test the water in all of our schools and facilities.

District staff took samples from all water faucets used for drinking or food preparation, and we recently received the results. Initial water sampling by district staff was conducted following the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) testing guidelines for sampling water in schools. The EPA recommends taking action to reduce lead at any water outlet that has a lead level above 20 parts per billion (ppb) using these sampling protocols. The District used a drinking water laboratory accredited by the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) to analyze water samples for lead.

District staff collected samples from 97 fixtures. Initial test results show:

  • Two (2) drinking fountains and one (1) sink faucet with elevated lead levels on the first draw of water left dormant overnight, and
  • All remaining faucets and drinking fountains at normal levels.

Fixtures with elevated levels on first draw include:

  • Creswell High School Metal Shop, Entryway Fountain,
  • Creswell High School Science Supply Room Sink, and
  • Creswell High School Main Gym, Upstairs Fountain.

District staff are taking corrective actions this summer (i.e., replace the fixtures where elevated lead levels were identified), and will retest the water to ensure it is safe for students and staff. This work will be completed before school starts in the fall.
