Annual Water Test For Lead

Federal and state regulations require Columbia Borough School District and all school district to conduct annual safe drinking water lead tests.  This needs to be done even if all lead pipes have been removed from the premises.  We do these tests every year and we randomly pick where we take the samples from so, they are never from the same source every year.
