Detroit Public Schools To Shut Off Drinking Water
(Detroit, MI) — Detroit Public Schools will be shutting off drinking water after tests revealed elevated levels of lead and copper. Superintendent Dr. Nikolai Vitti says he initiated the testing to ensure the students and employees were safe. Initial results show 16 schools had higher than acceptable levels of copper and/or lead at one or more water sources. Students will be provided with waterbottles until water coolers arrive. They are working to determine a long-term solution to the problem.
