Environmental Health Issues and Water Quality

Drinking Water Quality Program

Drinking Water Quality at Seattle Public Schools

Seattle Public Schools considers student health and safety as a top priority. In 2004, our School Board adopted a Drinking Water policy and we implemented a set of rigorous protocols which established nationally recognized standards for safe drinking water quality in public schools. Those included periodic testing of each drinking water source in each school, coupled with reporting of the results.

In 2021, the Washington State legislature adopted new laws that reduced the levels of lead in drinking water that will meet their standard. The new legislation also requires that all water quality testing be conducted by the State Department of Health (DOH) or by contractors certified by them. Seattle Public Schools can no longer perform sampling and testing that will comply with the new requirements.

Water Quality School Report

Historical results for all schools are still available online. You can find reports for each school (generally a summary of the current status, and results for ten years of testing performed between 2010-2020). 

Available below are results from past and current water quality tests between 2010-2020.

Sinks (S in the report) are not considered drinking water sources.  We recognize that there is the potential for students to want to drink from classroom hand-washing sinks, so we test all of those. Where a student’s choice to drink from a sink could be a problem, we post a reminder sign, as we do at all restroom sinks.
