 Water Bubblers:


As you travel throughout the city, you may find that certain water bubblers have been turned off.  These bubblers were tested and it was found that they had unacceptable lead levels. They will remain off until the situation can be resolved.  We ask that you plan accordingly if you are going to be at one of these sites.
