Documenting Lead Findings in New York’s Schools

A snapshot of current areas where lead contamination is present throughout state schools where testing has been performed.

Lead In School Waters MapLead In School Waters Map

The hot topic item that has been on our agenda is making it way through the legislative process.  Many schools have taken the liberty of performing there own water testing, at the tap, and drinking fountains.  The map above identifies areas throughout the state where they have already decided to perform water testing.  The table below shows, of those test results, which school districts, and schools, reported back with higher than the EPA’s limit of lead contamination.

The problem does not end there though – as this clearly is not for all of the school in New York State.  Again, the NYLCV promotes, and supports, Sen. O’Mara and Assm. Lupardo for their sponsorship of the school lead bill, S7103A/A9687A, which would require schools to test for lead contamination and work efficiently and effectively to mitigate the problem, should contamination be found.  Allocating funds towards water testing is now more important than ever and should be at the top of the priority for every parent, educator, administrator, etc. for providing the proper health and development of our future generational leaders.
