Mon, 02/04/2019 - 1:01pm
Howard County Public School System (HCPSS) began in September 2018 to test all schools for the presence of lead in school drinking water. The testing is being conducted to comply with a new state regulation requiring lead testing of drinking water outlets in all Maryland schools and not because of any concerns with drinking water in Howard County schools. The state regulations apply to all Maryland school systems. 
Deep Run drinking water outlets were tested on January 24th and 25th.  Results indicated that all drinking water outlets sampled were all below the action level.  Full results can be found at:

​Please note that the sinks where there is red sign indicating "Do no use for drinking" means that the sink was not tested for lead but the water is provided by a public utility that is regulated under the Federal Safe Drinking Water Act.
