MEHLVILLE, Mo. (KMOX) – The Mehlville School District says its drinking and cooking water is, mostly, lead free.
In a statement, the district says only one water source, a faucet in the kitchen at Oakville Middle School, tested above the Environmental Protection Agency’s limit of lead measuring 15 parts per billion. That faucet tested at 15.9 parts per billion and will be replaced, but it won’t be used until it’s retested.
The district says most of the 63 water samples taken tested below 1 part per billion.
