    75 CPS schools now have tested positive for lead
    Chicago Public Schools has 75 elementary schools with amounts of lead in their drinking water that have tested above federally acceptable standards. That's about 18 percent so far of the 422 grade schools run by the city's school system. CPS released the updated numbers after 8 p.m.
    http://chicago.suntimes.com

  • The lead in water is minimal; the real threat is lead paint. Even at CPS only about 3% of the fixtures tested had lead issues.

  • Mike Conover '90's HP block orginizing,CAPS- resident since '07

    The lead gets into Chicago water after it leaves the city supplies. there is some lead pieing within building, and most of the water supplies from main to building (which are for the most part not the water department's responsibility, but the building owners) build before the 70's are lead. Chicago takes significant efforts to mitigate those privately owned lead pipes. In this instance (where some drinking fountains test high and others do not) there is likely some old lead internal piping. Another problem for an already over-beleaguered CPS.
