Concerns of lead-tainted water in school fountains triggers Dallas ISD to test all campuses

Dallas ISD officials will start testing water for lead at all of its campuses by Oct. 1, according to documents obtained Thursday by The Dallas Morning News.

The move comes after the district learned that many district water fountains were made by the same manufacturers who supplied Fort Worth schools. This summer, the Fort Worth district announced it was replacing about 500 fountains after finding high lead levels in nearly three dozen elementary schools.
