Lead Test Results

We take the health of our students and staff extremely seriously.  Without being required to do so, BCPS has tested school drinking fountains for lead since 2016.

As required by new state regulations regarding lead testing for drinking water in schools, BCPS is testing water from all potential drinking water sources in all schools during the 2018-2019 school year.

BCPS schools built prior to 1990 have had bottled water for drinking since 2016.  Schools built during 1990 or later will provide bottled drinking water until results meet the state’s new action level of 20 parts per billion. 

A summary of results analyzed by an independent lab will be sent home by each school to parents, guardians, and staff. If results do not meet the action level, the fixture will be turned off and replaced. The new fixture will not be available for students or staff to use until follow-up tests show that results meet the state’s action level. 

In Baltimore County, the most common cause of lead poisoning in children is lead paint found in homes built before 1978.  Please remember to keep children away from lead paint and dust, and be mindful of products containing lead, including candy, toys, makeup, and jewelry.
