Elgin school district’s water tests find high lead levels 

ELGIN, Ill. (AP) — More than 250 drinking fountains and other water sources in Elgin schools will be replaced after tests found higher-than-recommended lead levels. The (Elgin) Courier-News reports that testing results found 350 samples from 260 water fountains, sinks and coolers in School District U46 didn’t meet the state of Illinois’ 5-parts-per-billion threshold for lead levels in drinking water. Water sources that didn’t meet the state standard will either be shut off, upgraded with a new filter or replaced.
