    August 13, 2019

    The drinking water at Sand Hill Elementary School comes from an onsite water system that is operated under regulatory oversight by the EPD.  The Effingham County School System conducts routine quarterly water testing along with additional less frequent periodic testing for lead and copper as required by EPD public water regulations.  Recent water test results for lead and copper for the Sand Hill Elementary School site showed that the water is safe to drink with lead and copper quantities well below EPD action level thresholds. 

    As required by law, the results of all lead and copper water testing are maintained onsite at Sand Hill Elementary School and are available for public viewing during normal school hours.
