High Lead Levels Found in Bloomington Schools

High levels of lead have been discovered at several District 87 elementary schools: Oakland, Irving, Sheridan and Bent.  An Illinois law passed in January requires all elementary schools and day care facilities in the state, built before 2000, to check drinking water sources for possible lead contamination. District 87 Superintendent Barry Reilly tells the Pantagraph they are shutting off those fixtures, replacing them, adding filters and retesting the water.
