The school district on Monday released results of samples collected when water was turned on and after water was left running for two minutes.

Screenings have revealed elevated lead and copper levels in at six of fifteen public schools in the Detroit suburb of Grosse Pointe.

The school district on Monday released results of samples collected when water was turned on and after water was left running for two minutes.

The district says testing was done at the finish of March. Ten of one hundred thirty samples exceeded federal standards. Water fountains over the federal action level were disconnected.

The testing was prompted by the crisis in Flint, where lead flowed from taps after state authorities switched the city'south water supply from Detroit'south system to the Flint River to save money.

Detroit Schools said latest week that elevated levels of lead and copper were found in water fountains or kitchens at nineteenth of sixty-two schools tested.
