June 18, 2017 (San Diego’s East County) – A new state program authorizes school districts to work with local water districts to provide free lead testing of drinking water at all school sites.  The results are in for Cajon Valley Union School District campuses, which draw water from three water agencies: Helix Water District, Otay Water District and Padre Dam Municipal Water District.

Scott Buxbaum, Assistant Superintendent and Chief Business Officer for the district, announced the outcome. “Following the strict sampling instructions set forth by the State Water Resources Control Board, testing has been completed and we are pleased to report that all of CVUSD’s school campuses passed with good results.
