GLASSBORO, N.J. (AP) - A New Jersey university says it’s looking into why some campus buildings have elevated lead levels in the water.

Rowan University said Tuesday water will be tested in academic and administrative buildings starting Monday. Residential buildings will be tested in January.

The Glassboro university says the review will help it create a plan to address the affected buildings.

Discolored water was reported in an administrative building over the summer. Water at some campus buildings was later found to have elevated lead levels.

Rowan says filters have been added to 27 water fountains on its Glassboro campus. The school also has 30 filtered water-bottle filling stations and fountains.

The university says it will provide filtered water in academic and administration buildings. Filtered or bottled water will be available at residence halls.
