Delta School District Water Management Update

Attention Parents and Guardians, Staff and Stakeholders

Re: Delta School District Water Management Update

The Delta School District is committed to the health and safety of all its students and staff.

At the request of the Provincial Health Officer via the Ministry of Education to all school districts in the Province, the Delta School District has established a plan to evaluate water quality in Delta schools.

Voluntary water quality testing in our older (pre-1989) facilities is now complete and planning for long-term addressing of fixtures with elevated levels of lead in water is underway.

In the interim, schools are undertaking preventative measures, which includes running water for a couple of minutes at all drinking sources each morning to mitigate any trace of any potential contaminants in the water.  Drinking sources which failed to drop below maximum acceptable concentrations after flushing during testing have been removed from service.
