rt.com Children and pregnant women in Sebring, Ohio, have been advised not to drink tap water as another poisoning scandal has erupted in the US. Elevated lead levels in the water were detected last year, but local officials failed to notify thousands of residents for months. Schools in Sebring, a village about 60 miles southeast of Cleveland, were closed on Friday and Monday as officials tested for elevated lead levels in the water supply. Testing over the weekend found one drinking fountain at the district's school buildings with lead levels that exceed safe levels. Pregnant women and children were asked to have their blood tested for elevated lead levels at a local clinic.
