Main Campus Drinking Water Supply Passes Routine Test

August 03, 2009

Saint Leo University’s drinking water supply at the main campus has passed an inspection that measures possible levels of contamination from a common variety of sources, such as salts, minerals, and microbes. The university had the water monitored throughout 2008. SLU’s campus water contained no substances that exceeded safety levels set by regulators. Drinking water, including bottled water, can reasonably be expected to contain at least some level of other substances. The main campus drinking supply comes from two groundwater wells, and is chlorinated for disinfection purposes.

The university tests its drinking water routinely and reports the results in compliance with government regulations.
