Tap Water Results for January-June 2023 Sampling Monitoring Period

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 60 tap samples for lead and copper analysis on May 9-12, 2023. 54 of the 60 tap water samples had lead levels less than the federal action level 15.5 parts per billion (ppb). The levels of lead reported at these locations ranged from <0.5 to 15.4 parts per billion. Six (6) of the 60 samples were 18.1, 18.3, 34.0, 35.0, 36.6, and 176 ppb, which was over the 15 ppb action level. These samples were collected from HS 117 AB Office Sink, HS 224 Restroom Right Sink, CDC Blue Room Sink, CDC Red Room, Sink CDC Lobby Restroom Sink, and CDC Pink Room Sink, respectively. 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?

The consumer can be found by viewing the report linked below or by visiting the Environmental Health and Safety website and selecting the June 2023 Consumer Notice.
