LEWES, Del.- After testing revealed elevated levels of lead in three Lewes homes, some of the city's institutions have been given the all clear. 

According to the Lewes Board of Public Works, water at the Cape Henlopen schools, Beebe Hospital, Harbor Health care and the Children's Beach House have come back below the EPA and Delaware State Office of Drinking Water action level for lead. 

In a letter, Cape Henlopen School District Superintendent Bob Fulton thanked Cape families and staff for their patience during the testing process. Fulton confirmed four facilities were under the advisory: Shields Elementary, the Lewes School, Cape Henlopen High School and the Fred Thomas building. All four now have water safe to drink.

The Lewes Board of Public Works has announced it will begin testing for lead every six months.
