Notice About Lead Testing Results for NEHS Families

As part of our ongoing commitment to safe and healthy learning environments for students and staff, we are making parents aware that recent testing of water samples in sinks at Northeastern High School that are not used for consumption tested positive for elevated lead levels.
Nine samples were taken from the water system at NEHS for testing on June 19. Three of the lead sample results exceeded the lead action level of 15 ug/L. The elevated results were 21.5 ug/L (RM IMC) , 46.8 ug/L (RM 26), and 56.5 ug/L (RM 3). The remaining six results were within the recommended levels.
Given that the lead sample results at these locations were greater than 15 ug/L, the fixtures were immediately removed from service. The sinks that tested positive for elevated areas are the sink in the media center, a sink in a science room and a sink in the health room.
We are taking the recommended steps to remedy these levels and conducting further testing to make sure other water areas are not affected. We are working closely with the EPA, the Clark County Combined Health Department, and our water testing company to ensure a safe and healthy environment for all students.
