Charlotte Observer // Editorial Board // August 24, 2018
Summary: The reports are as concerning as the photo is gross. In Mecklenburg County, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools ran tests on drinking fountains at 58 schools last fall and found 27 had unacceptably high levels of lead, the Observer reported this month. In Guilford County, a sampling of one tap per site at 99 Greensboro-area schools found three with lead levels to the point at which the Environment Protection Agency recommends corrective action, the News & Record reported last week. Then there’s that photo, which is best not viewed within a half-hour of meals. It was taken by a South Mecklenburg High School teacher and showed a bag with rust-colored liquid tied to a faucet. It didn’t appear to be a faucet that students would be drinking out of, but the photo nevertheless tied together a troubling issue that schools face: old plumbing might be threatening the water our children drink.
Students win, businesses win, and Rockingham County wins!
