Plymouth Christian Academy Water Safety

Recent news regarding contaminated drinking water in Flint may have caused parents to wonder whether the drinking water at PCA poses any health risks to our students. PCA, like all of Canton, uses Detroit public water. Canton performs extensive testing on the Detroit public water supply on an annual basis. The most-recently published Water Quality Report for the Canton Community from 2014 is available HERE. The 2015 Canton water report will be available at the end of April. In addition, supplemental testing was performed on PCA elementary and secondary water samples to ensure that water delivery systems from Detroit to our school do not introduce any copper or lead contaminants. PCA water samples were evaluated in February 2016 by Brighton Analytical whose testing confirmed that no detectable level of lead was present and the level of copper was well below the Maximum Contaminant Level Goal (MCLG). The MCLG measures the level of contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected risk to health. Their summary report is available HERE.
The safety of your children is a top property for PCA leadership. Please let us know if you have any further questions or concerns. You can share those with the Regent Board at firstname.lastname@example.org.
