Bottled water is delivered to the Warm Springs reservation on November 14, 2018.

Childcare facilities on the Warm Springs reservation were tested last year for lead in the drinking water. One location showed nearly double the action levels set by the Environmental Protection Agency, according to records obtained by OPB.

Lead was not detected in the reservation's current K-8 school and other childcare buildings, according to tribal officials.
