Lead Testing

The Health and Safety Committee of the St. Vincent School Board had lead testing done for the water in the school and Holy Family Hall, and the results showed that our water is very safe. Recently, the Health and Safety Committee received lead testing results from water in the rectory, church, and Benvegnu Center. Follow up testing is recommended for samples whose initial draw samples show lead in excess of 20 micrograms per liter. We are happy to report that none of our values are anywhere near that.
