High lead levels found in Howell elementary school water

HOWELL, MI (WLNS) – In light of the Flint water crisis the Howell School District decided to test for lead at all of its schools.

On Thursday the results showed two testing sites inside Northwest Elementary School had high levels of lead.

While officials say the levels are drastically lower than the levels found in Flint schools, water coolers will be stationed throughout Northwest Elementary School until the water is deemed safe.

Further water testing is scheduled for Friday, Feb. 19. This testing is expected to verify or disprove the results from the first test.

6 News will continue to follow this story and provide updates when they are available.
