High levels of lead found in school drinking water in Polk County

drinking water sources at several Polk County schools have been tested as of late.  So far, four have had higher-than normal levels of lead detected. 

District maintainece manager Rory Luce says bottled water is being used for those students while those faucets and water fountains have been replaced. 

Luce assures that the district will find the money necessary to make these repairs and continue to test the drinking water at all 150 of the district's schools.
