Schools Water

/ 97.3 The Eagle
               The province says it’s spending 750-thousand dollars to ensure more than 16-hundred students will soon have access to healthier water from school drinking fountains. Drinking water projects at six schools — including two in Williams Lake and one in Victoria — have been accelerated and are to be completed by March 31st. The government says the projects are in addition to the 6.5 million dollars invested in school districts since last year to reduce lead levels in water. The province says it is funding the upgrades because recent testing found elevated levels of lead in water at several schools.
