Lead and copper levels close faucets at ACRSD

CHESHIRE – Results of a lead and copper test have made the Adams-Cheshire Regional School District shut off of eight faucets and bubblers, according to a report from Superintendent Robert Putnam.
According to the report, no drinking fountains were affected, which means no students were directly drinking from sources that were “above actionable levels.” Overall, five faucets were shut off, two bubblers were shut off, and one faucet in an art room was labeled “hand washing only,” a restriction which is allowed by the public works department.
The shutoff and results report comes after a district-wide lead and copper test, which was funded through a grant from the Massachusetts Clean Water Trust.
