In the latest round of tests, 50 out of 54 samples were below the federal allowable limit for lead, according to the Ohio EPA. In all, 44 samples had elevated levels for lead.
The Ohio EPA is continuing to work with the Village of Sebring to fine tune its water chemistry to minimize lead from leaching into the water from piping of certain homeowners. Recent test results confirm that the village’s water plant is lead free.
