Consumer Notice of Tap Water Result for 2021

Wright State University is required to distribute a Consumer Notice for our Tap Water Results to all faculty, staff, and students.

Wright State’s University water system has found levels of lead in drinking water above the federal action level of 15 parts per billion (ppb)in 6 tap locations in 2 buildings. The level of lead reported at these 6 locations was 15.8 to 23.6 ppb. Lead can cause serious health problems, especially for pregnant women and young children.  Please read the Consumer Notice closely to see what you can do to reduce lead in your drinking water.

The Consumer Notice contains, but is not limited to, information such as:

  • Where were samples taken and what were the results?
  • What is being done?
  • What does this mean?
  • What are the health effects of lead?
  • Where can I get health screenings and testing of blood lead levels?
  • What can I do to reduce exposure to lead if found in my drinking water?
  • What are the sources of lead?
  • Where can I get additional information?

Answers to these questions can be found by viewing the attached report (PDF) or visiting the Environmental Health & Safety website and selecting the 2021 Consumer Notice.
