Madison Parents Sound Off on Water Concerns

Families in Madison voiced their concerns Monday night about issues with the water at two local schools.

In November, tests found high levels of uranium in the drinking water at Brown Middle School and Ryerson Elementary. Now, residents are wondering if their well water has the same problem.

The Madison and state health departments held an information session Monday and told residents to have their water tested.

"They can treat their drinking water, there's a device -- a reverse osmosis device -- they can put under their kitchen sink that will treat the drinking water," Madison director of health John Bowers said.

The two schools will continue to use bottled water. Testing for uranium is ongoing.
