Facility Monitoring Results

This School/District is committed to protecting the health of students, teachers, and staff. We are participating in the School Drinking Water Quality Reimbursement Program, which is a program jointly administered by the Michigan Department of Education and Department of Environmental Quality. This program is designed to provide school funding for costs associated with the mitigation of potential lead exposure from drinking water. Up to $950 per school building is available on a reimbursement basis for the cost of testing for lead in drinking water, fixture replacement, filter purchases, plumbing assessments, or technical assistance incurred between July 1, 2016, and September 30, 2017.

The School Drinking Water Quality Reimbursement Program requires that schools submit proof of public notification of the number of fixtures providing water for drinking or food preparation, testing results, number of fixtures replaced, and other corrective action plans prior to reimbursement. This information is as follows:

PFAs Water Testing Results

The MDEQ PFAs testing at the Oakland Schools Technical Campus Northwest was done with two samples per their testing protocol to ensure accuracy.

The results show that while PFAS is present in the water at the site, it is well below the Lifetime Health Advisory (LHA) level of 70 ppt. 

The OSTC-NW campus was not identified as a site that needed additional action. However, in the interest of safety for our students and staff, and following the lead of the DEQ Plan, we will continue to monitor and test regularly to ensure the water remains safe.

Lifetime Health Advisory= 70ppt

About Lead:
Lead can cause serious health problems if too much enters your body from drinking water or other sources. It can cause damage to the brain and kidneys, and it can interfere with the production of red blood cells that carry oxygen to all parts of your body. The greatest risk of lead exposure is to infants, young children, and pregnant women. Scientists have linked the effects of lead on the brain with lowered IQ in children. Adults with kidney problems and high blood pressure can be affected by low levels of lead more than healthy adults. Lead is stored in the bones, and it can be released later in life.

For information about water quality and sampling for lead at home, contact your local water supplier or the Michigan DEQ.
