Lead Testing

In 2022, Missouri Legislation took a step forward to reduce lead exposure in Missouri children by passing the Get the Lead out of School Drinking Water Act (Section 160.077, RSMo).  This Act sets a new standard in Missouri for lead concentrations in school drinking water which is lower than the lead action level set nationally by the Environmental Protection Agency for public water systems. The Act requires schools to conduct inventory, sampling, remediation, and monitoring at all potable drinking water outlets used or potentially be used for drinking, food preparation, and cooking or cleaning utensils in a school building. 


Nixa Public Schools has begun the process of testing all of our schools and will post results below as we receive them.



For information on lead and exposure, you can find resources on the Centers For Disease Control website.
