School and Office Water Source Signs
n our continued effort to maintain safe drinking water for our students and staff, Prince George’s County Public Schools (PGCPS) began comprehensive testing in April 2017 of drinking water sources in our facilities. These sources include water fountains and sinks in health rooms, teachers' lounges and kitchens.
Non-Potable Water labels, like the one below, have been placed above specific fixtures:
- Valved-off drinking water sources that previously tested above U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) action levels
- Non-drinking water sources, such as sinks in classrooms, bathrooms, custodial closets and work areas
Non-potable water can be used for non-drinking and non-cooking purposes, such as washing your hands.
