Flint water crisis prompts lead testing at DeKalb County Schools

The DeKalb County School District will begin testing water at its schools, centers and administrative buildings next week, amid concerns about high lead levels found by schools across the country.

A district web page will update the community on test results as they become available.

Superintendent Steve Green said the water crisis in Flint, Mich., started conversations about the safety of DeKalb’s drinking water.
