Consumer Notice of Tap Water Results - July 2023

Meets or exceeds state and federal lead and copper drinking water standards

Tap Water Results

Wright State University is required to distribute a Consumer Notice for our Tap Water Results to all users of water served by its Public Water System.

Wright State’s University water system collected 7 special purpose tap samples for lead and copper analysis on June 24, 2023. The 7 samples were collected after new lead-free fixtures were installed at tap locations that had lead measurements over 15 ppb in May 2023. 6 of the 7 tap water samples collected from the new fixtures had lead levels less than the federal action level 15.5 parts per billion (ppb, which ranged from <2 to 13 parts per billion (ppb). One of the 7 samples was 34 ppb, which was over the 15.5 ppb action level. The sample was collected from CDC Pink Room Sink. Lead can cause serious health problems, especially for pregnant women and young children.  

Read this information closely to see what you can do to reduce lead in your drinking water. Lead can cause serious health problems, especially for pregnant women and young children.  

The Consumer Notice (CN) alerts consumers of the results for individual tap samples that is given to persons served at the tap, along with information about lead. 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?
