The DPW and Dept of Parks & Recreation have found elevated lead levels at drinking fountains at Gath Pool, Crystal Lake & Cabot Park. All 5 fountains have been turned off. The city has since decided to turn off other fountains all over Newton, including Franklin School.
Nobody loves a water fountain more than me you guys. Could sit there and slurp it up all day. So kinda bummed I’m gonna have fewer options. Germs/no germs, lead/no lead really doesn’t matter to me. Just gotta get that H2o in.
I’ll always have the 3 fountains at BSC W Newton though. No water pressure, covered in sweat. Luke warm the way I like it.
