LORDSTOWN, Ohio (WYTV) – The Lordstown Local School District took several water samples, and some of those tested above federal allowable limits, according to Lordstown Local Schools Superintendent Terry Armstrong.

Armstrong said 175 samples were taken in the high school, boys’ varsity locker room sink, four sinks in the chemistry lab, in the administrative office and in an art room sink. In the elementary, a water tap in the gym was tested.

The district has posted signs on the sinks, warning students not to drink the water. Armstrong said no water fountains in the schools tested high for lead.

He said the Lordstown Water Department helped with testing and informed parents of the elevated results.
