All Lakeside School Pass Test for Clean Drinking Water
 

As part of the new program offered by the State Water Resources Control Board (SWRCB), school districts could request free testing of drinking water at school sites from its local water agency.  The District worked with our two water authorities: Helix Water District (serves 1 school) and Lakeside Water District (serves 8 schools) to take several samples at each school to test.  Following strict sampling instructions set forth by the SWRCB and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), we are pleased to report that all test results from our schools were either “not detectable” or below the action level required and no further action is needed.
