Get the Lead out of School Drinking Water Act (RSMo 160.077)

In accordance with Missouri statute, lead water testing is mandatory in all public schools with pre-K-12 enrollment.  To date, the Lincoln County R-III School District has created an inventory of drinking and food preparation receptacles and subsequently hired a professional service to perform all related services. Water testing will begin over spring break in 2024 and continue until finished.  Water reporting will be posted in this location on the website when available. Below are some helpful links with more information.
