RAPID CITY, S.D. — The Rapid City school district is going to check for lead in the drinking water at its schools.

The Rapid City Journal (http://bit.ly/2dxDXOq) reports that district officials have ordered a test on school drinking water fixtures that’s expected to be performed in November.

A routine survey finished in July shows also that asbestos remains in 23 district buildings.

District spokeswoman Katy Urban says the drinking water test and the asbestos survey aren’t cause for concern.

Kit Cline, manager of buildings and grounds, says he’s waiting for price quotes from testing agencies.
