Officials Find Unsafe Lead Levels In Water At Clairemont Mesa French School

A French language immersion school in Clairemont Mesa became the fourth campus in San Diego where water was found to have unsafe levels of lead, city officials said Thursday. At a meeting of the City Council’s Environment Committee, officials with the Public Utilities Department said La Petite Ecole was one of numerous schools to ask the city for testing. Unsafe levels of lead were previously discovered at three San Diego Unified School District Schools — Birney Elementary School in University Heights, Emerson-Bandini Elementary School and San Diego Cooperative Charter. The latter two share a campus in Southcrest.
