In accordance with Regulation 243/07, school boards and
child care providers are required to flush the plumbing in schools and child
care centres; sample and test the drinking water for lead content; as well as
maintain logs and report drinking water results to the Ministry of Environment
and Climate Change.
In the event that levels of lead exceed ministry guidelines
in a water sample, the LKDSB notifies Ministry and local public health
officials and follows the direction of the Medical Officers of Health for
corrective action and resolution.
The LKDSB is committed to openness and transparency
regarding the health and safety of our facilities. A summary report of
facilities with lead exceedances and corrective actions and resolutions is
published on the LKDSB
website. Complete water testing reports are also available for viewing at
