Water Safety in Our Schools

  • On Sept. 6, 2016, New York passed a law requiring public school districts to test their water outlets for lead contamination and to implement a lead remediation plan where necessary.

    Any water outlet that exceeds the state's action level of 15 ppb (parts per billion) is removed from service immediately. Those outlets will be remediated and retested by the certified laboratory before being used again. Bottled water will be available for student and staff use if necessary.
    As we receive the water sample results, the letters to parents and staff by building and the water testing detailed reports by building will be posted on the 2021 Water Testing Result webpage.
