Consolidated Follow-Up Water Test Result Shows “False Positive”

In response to a story that ran in the Thursday edition of the Janesville Gazette, the District is informing local media outlets that the following correspondence went out to Consolidated Elementary School families and staff members this afternoon:

Consolidated Families,


Environmental Chemistry, the District’s contracted water consultants performed a follow-up test to the well water at Consolidated Elementary School, in response to a positive test result for total coliform reported to us on October 30th.  The results of that test showed a negative result, which means our first test result was what is commonly referred to as a “false positive”.

With the negative test result now known to us, we have turned on the drinking fountains and our daily operations at Consolidated Elementary School are back to normal operating procedures.
