In light of recent media reports about lead levels in drinking water at specific sites across Hong Kong, we can reassure you that we have tested our water and it is safe to drink.
HKIS performs water quality tests each year at the Repulse Bay and Tai Tam campuses, and has done for many years. These tests are focused on the typical major water quality concerns (coliform and E. coli), but also test for less serious issues (like pH, turbidity, iron and conductivity). Recently, we also tested for lead, and no appreciable lead content was measured. As always, all of our test results continue to exceed WHO guidelines, confirming that our water quality is excellent. Please contact Pat Hall, Director of Facilities, with any questions. Thank you!
