The number of contaminated water fixtures in South Butler School District buildings has dwindled to seven.

Gannett Fleming, the company that has tested and remedied the district's water fixture issues, released a report on its third round of testing.

The testing showed that seven water fixtures out of 268 contain unsafe levels of copper or lead. District solicitor Tom Breth said the board is “optimistic” that a fourth round of testing will show that the remaining contamination will be eliminated in the next four to six weeks.

A full report will appear in the Butler Eagle.
