Lead Testing Information
2021-22 School Year
On September 6, 2016, Governor Andrew M. Cuomo signed legislation (A.l 0740/S.8158) requiring all school districts and boards of cooperative educational services (BOCES) in New York State to test potable (drinking) water systems for lead contamination and to take responsive actions. The State Department of Health and the State Education Department has established an action level threshold of 15 parts per billion or .015 mg/L. The water sources that test above this level must be immediately taken out of service and corrective action must be taken.
The District has collected samples from all potential drinking water sources throughout the district in the early fall of 2021, including the typical drinking water sources such as drinking fountains and kitchen sinks and some areas not typically associated with drinking water such as custodial closets and bathroom sinks. The results of this testing can be found to the left.
The District will replace or remediate affected sinks as appropriate. Before the water source is back in service for students and staff members, additional water tests will be conducted to determine if the replacement/remediation was successful
Please be assured that the district is in full compliance with the regulations and will diligently work to ensure drinking water throughout the district meets the State requirements.
