Two schools in Baltimore County have tested positive for elevated levels of lead in their water.

Officials say students who go to Chadwick Elementary and Baltimore Highlands Elementary should not drink or use the water at their schools.  

Both schools have hand sinks that tested positive for over 30 parts per billion of lead. That amount is 10 parts per billion more than what is considered safe. 

The schools have since shut off the sinks. They're providing bottled drinking water to students.
