School starts up today in the city of Detroit, but with concerns of high copper and lead levels, the city has turned off the drinking water for the public school system. Water will be made available with water coolers. Reminiscent of the Flint water crisis, there is concern is with schools’ old plumbing systems, which could be contaminating perfectly good water. 24 schools were tested for water quality, and last month 16 came back with questionable results. The superintendent said it’s shutting down the district’s 106 public schools’ water until the problem is fixed. This problem is not a new one to districts around the country. Baltimore city water fountains there have been shut off in schools for more than a decade.
