Testing Water for Lead

Starting in February 2017, the Oregon Youth Authority began testing the water at all of our facilities for lead and copper. Lead can be harmful to people's health, and we wanted to make sure all youth, staff, contractors, volunteers, and visitors are safe and healthy.​

At Camp Florence, initial tests found one outlet with levels of lead and seven with levels of copper that were at or above the level where we take immediate action. We immediately took these outlets out of use for drinking and cooking. Our testing appears to indicate that the issues at Florence are related to the water pipes, which we plan to replace in summer 2018.
