Student test finds toilet water cleaner than drinking fountains

‘Middle School student Kyleray Katherman had a hunch something was amiss with the school’s drinking fountain water. And right he was.

For an English assignment, he tested the bacteria content at four water fountains and one toilet to challenge a ban on students from bringing bottled water to class. It seems some were using it to sneak in alcohol.

Guess which was cleaner? It wasn’t the water fountains.

He then asked students where they would prefer to get their water. That wasn’t the fountains, either.

Classmates, teachers, administrators and board members said they had no idea.’
