Get the Lead Out

In 2022, the Missouri legislature passed the Get the Lead out of School Drinking Water Act (RSMo 160.077), which sets standards for lead concentrations in school drinking water. The law requires schools to conduct inventory, sampling, remediation, and monitoring at all potable drinking water outlets used or potentially used for drinking, food preparation, and cooking or cleaning utensils. 

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) currently has a lead drinking water standard limit of 15 parts per billion (ppb) of lead in water. However, Missouri law requires that all  Missouri schools achieve a 5 ppb lead limit in water. The deadline for testing under the law is August 2024, and testing within the district began in late December 2023. 

To comply with the law, our district has completed lead testing in all four buildings. Outdoor facilities will be tested in the spring.  

Results will be posted on this page once they are available. Please contact Billy Roberts, Director of Operations, at 573-656-5512 or by email at [email protected] with any questions about this information.
