The University of Michigan has begun testing drinking water for levels of lead and copper in all of the Ann Arbor campus' buildings.

The executive director of the university's Department of Occupational Safety & Environmental Health says testing is being done out of an abundance of caution and that there's no indication of problems with the water.

The department is conducting the testing over the summer and expects to be done before classes resume in September.

Results of the testing will be posted on the department's website starting in mid-July.

Drinking water has already been tested at the Flint and Dearborn campuses.
