Health Department's School Water Testing

Mayor's Office Statement on DPSCD School Water Testing

We are fully supportive of the approach Dr. Vitti has taken to test all water sources within DPSCD schools and to provide bottled water until the district can implement a plan to ensure that all water is safe for use. We will be supporting Dr. Vitti in an advisory capacity through the Detroit Health Department and the DWSD has offered to partner with the district on any follow up testing that needs to be done. We also will be reaching out to our charter operators in the coming days to work with them on a possible similar testing strategy to the voluntary one Dr. Vitti has implemented.
