Is the Water Safe To Drink at School?

"Twenty-five northeast Indiana schools violated the Safe Drinking Water Act over a 15-year period, according to data provided by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

Most of the schools were found to have coliform in their water – bacteria within the E. coli family. The water at some schools tested positive for inappropriate levels of lead and copper, arsenic or nitrate.

Nine of the schools had more than one violation between 1998 and 2008."
