Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) Testing

Overview

The health, comfort, and learning environment of students and staff are important aspects of Community Unit School District 95 (CUSD 95) Lake Zurich’s mission.

Working with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and their IAQ Tools for Schools Program, and also with the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH), we developed an Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) Management Plan that will help monitor and improve the quality of air in school buildings.

The objectives of this IAQ Management Plan are:

  • Reduce the levels of indoor air pollutants through preventive measures such as routine maintenance activities, periodic building evaluations and inspections, and IAQ-specific policies.
  • Provide and maintain adequate airflow by repairing and maintaining ventilation equipment, which will promote a comfortable and healthy learning and working environment.
  • Respond to IAQ-related concerns and problems in a prompt and thorough manner, and effectively communicate the progress of investigations and their resolution to all interested parties.

IAQ Checklist

The IAQ Checklist was created from the IAQ Management Plan.  It serves as a checklist for the facilities department to ensure that all the items mentioned in the Management Plan are not overlooked.

During the walkthroughs at each school (two annually), a facilites staff member completes the IAQ Checklist. The completed checklists are posted on the district website and also are reviewed and discussed during each building's IAQ Management meetings.

Water Testing

Overview

District 95, in order to ensure we are providing safe drinking water for all building occupants, tests for lead and copper levels in potable water throughout the District. . According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), actionable levels of lead in the water are above 15 parts per billion (ppb) for Public Water Systems (PWS) and 20 ppb for water outlets (drinking fountains, faucets, ice makers, etc.) and 1300 parts per billion for copper within an occupied building. District 95 has adopted the more stringent level of 15 ppb for lead as a guide for when corrective measures should be taken.

District 95 intends to systematically monitor drinking fountains, faucets in areas where food is prepared and ice makers. The district will also test faucets used by Athletic Trainers to fill water containers for Athletics and faucets in each nurse’s office. The District may test other water outlets as deemed necessary.

If tests reveal an actionable level of lead or copper at a water outlet, the district will take steps to correct the situation.
