Red Clay Consolidated School District and Baltz Elementary School are committed to protecting the health of our students and staff. This letter is to provide an update regarding the recent sampling results at our school.
Delaware Department of Education and the Department of Public health partnered with the District to test all of the drinking sources in our building. Fixtures that tested above the state threshold of 7.5ppb (parts per billion) were removed from service and will be retested before use.
Below is the only drinking source in our building that tested above the threshold. All other drinking sources have been tested and are below the state threshold.
Tested March 1, 2023
Level = 4,400 ppb
This fixture was removed from operation six years ago.
