CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) - Corvallis officials say follow-up testing has determined that four drinking fountains at city parks are now to safe to drink from after initial tests revealed they had elevated lead levels.

KPTV-TV reports (https://bit.ly/2atXVtd ) that the city says it’s still working to figure out how lead is entering two water fixtures at Riverfront Park, which still showed lead levels in excess of federal limits after the second round of tests.

The city’s water supply comes from sources where lead has never been detected — the Willamette River and the Rock Creek Watershed.
