Water and soil testing to be undertaken at school campus

Water and environment testing will be carried out at St Ambrose and Buchanan high school campus in Coatbridge.

This is part of an independent review that is being conducted in relation to reported health and safety concerns at two Coatbridge schools after water supply contamination fears. The review team is looking at specific health and safety concerns as well as the history, construction and maintenance of the school campus.

Water testing will be carried out by Scottish Water. Wider environmental testing at the campus will include soil, water and the integrity of the methane membrane, installed as a safety measure when the campus was built. 

The specific detail and locations of the testing will be determined by the review team in conjunction with SEPA and other environmental health bodies.

The results of the tests will be published as part of the report due ahead of the school opening on 12 August.
