Elevated lead levels found at Canandaigua schools

Water testing at Canandaigua City School District facilities found two water fountains in the Primary Elementary School exceeded the threshold for lead level. In a letter to school district residents posted on the district website, Superintendent Lynne Erdle stated that access to these fountains, which were already limited in use, was removed immediately. “It is not unusual for fixtures in older buildings to have slightly elevated results, especially when the water has been sitting for some time,” Erdle stated, adding all other drinking fountains in district facilities met guidelines for water consumption.
