Chemeketa water quality testing results onlineA major concern for Oregonians has been the quality of water system, in particular the level of lead contamination.

The college’s facilities department began testing water in the buildings for lead contamination in June 2016, with priority given to buildings providing services to youth.

In order the keep the community informed on these results, the college has created a page on our website to post the results of these tests as they are made available.

The documents show the location each water sample was taken from, in addition to the amount of lead found in the water, shown as parts per billion (ppb). Any result of less than 0.015 is below the actionable level recommended by the Environmental Protection Agency. A result showing “ND” means there was not a detectable level of lead.

The water quality page is available here.
