One thought on “Elevated Lead Levels Found in Newark Schools’ Drinking Water”

  1. The lead in Flint, MI did not come from the ‘imported’ water, it came from the old pipes because the new water had not been treated to suppress corrosion, as the old water supply had been.
    I suspect the Newark schools most out of compliance are the ones with older plumbing involving soldered joints.
