(Portland, OR)  --  A report from Portland Public Schools shows test results from a sink at one school with lead levels at more than four times the highest level found in Flint, Michigan.  KGW-TV reports a sink faucet in Room 237 at Grant High School had 57-thousand-600 parts per billion of lead to water, compared to the highest level in Flint, which was 13-thousand parts per billion.  The findings were among test results released on more than five-dozen public schools in Portland.  Elevated levels of lead have been found at all but one of the schools, and high levels of copper registered at 51 of the school buildings.
