There's a potable water issue at John Read Middle School in Redding. During Tuesday's Board of Selectmen meeting, it was mentioned that comments on social media have linked the lack of potable water to inadequate funding, but that's been rebuked. According to meeting minutes, funding has not been sought as solutions are explored. Three wells have been dug over the years due to longstanding issues with the water. The current well in use at John Read has sodium levels that are too high for drinking water.
