In accordance with NYS Department of Health Lead Testing in School Drinking Water regulation, Western Suffolk BOCES is conducting testing of the water systems at WSBOCES-owned buildings. This regulation requires school districts and BOCES to test potable (drinking) water sources for lead contamination and to develop and implement a lead remediation plan, where applicable.
The environmental consulting and testing firm JC Broderick & Associates collected samples in accordance with the regulation and the results can be accessed through the link below. Both potable (drinking) and non-potable (hand-washing and cleaning) water sources were tested. All potable water sources that were identified as exceeding the lead action level were immediately removed from service.
