HARTFORD, Wisc. — Officials at an elementary school in Wisconsin are trying to figure out how antifreeze contaminated the school’s drinking water.

The water was tested after cracked pipes were discovered in the building’s air conditioning system.

Bottled water is being provided while the problem is fixed.

They’re still not sure how the antifreeze got into the water or exactly how long the problem has been going on.

Water quality tests show the levels of antifreeze are low and officials don’t believe anyone became sick.

The pipes are now being replaced.

Results from a new round of water quality tests are expected on Friday.
