FRANKSVILLE - It's looking like another school in Racine County has a water problem.
 
Unsafe levels of the potentially hazardous metal molybdenum have been found in the water at North Cape Elementary School in Fransville. The district's school board plans to address the issue at a meeting Tuesday night.
 
The state Natural Resources and Health Services Department doesn't believe there's enough metal to have health effects, but the school is still weighing it's options.
 
Last month, it was learned that nearby Raymond Elementary School has the same problem.
 
The levels are higher at Raymond.
 
The school has been bringing in water for students and investigating long-term solutions.
