    DescriptionA University of WA study has confirmed more public drinking fountains in Perth are leaching lead.

    Professor Anas Ghadouani, program chair for environmental engineering, said the results of a pilot study confirmed lead was leaching in most of the fountains.

    His department tested water samples from 23 public drinking fountains in Kings Park, Swanbourne and Cottesloe. The highest level of lead was from a fountain next to a children’s playground in North Cottesloe.
