CARRBORO — The Orange Water and Sewer Authority said Tuesday that recent testing of drinking water in 21 new buildings found no violations of lead standards under the Federal Safe Drinking Water Act.
The federal limit for lead is 15 parts per billion. OWASA serves the Chapel Hill-Carrboro community including UNC-Chapel Hill.
In mid-May, OWASA began testing a random sample of homes, businesses and institutional buildings less than two years old.
