Many parents are upset over how the district handled the discovery of tainted water at Summit Elementary School.

Water at the school has tested positive for lead, copper and E. coli.

A federal lawsuit has been filed against the district and its superintendent, alleging the district and superintendent were negligent in failing to warn and failing to protect the students when test results in August of 2016 showed unacceptable lead levels in the drinking water

    I have a question. I have noticed a NEW gas fracking well less than 1,000 yards NE of the school, that is less than 5 years old. As fracking has been proven to have caused multiple environmental issues in other parts of the area/country, anyone think to question or bring up the possibilities in THIS case?
    No matter what. IF proven these “people” did in fact know about the condition of the water, and didn’t tell the parents, and/or “covered it up,” hefty jail time should be doled out.
    But the Liberals controlling the court system in today’s USA will NOT jail them-Period!
