Some Minnesota schools neglect guidelines for water testing


MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Testing for lead in drinking water at some Minnesota schools hasn't been done since the late 1990s despite a state health recommendation that it be done every five years.

Among water testing records of more than 600 Minnesota schools, at least one out of every four of those schools are not testing based on the Minnesota Department of Health's recommendation, KSTP-TV ( ) reported.

Records show Minneapolis Public Schools hasn't tested at least 31 of its schools since 1998, though district officials say they are following the state's guidelines for flushing water lines to reduce lead levels.
