JD Tests Potable Water for Lead


A new state law was signed in September that requires public schools in New York State to test all water outlets that are used or could be used for drinking or cooking purposes for lead levels. In accordance with the law water testing was conducted in September and October. Testing results can be viewed using the links below.  

Jamesville-DeWitt Middle School Results
We are pleased to report that all water outlets typically used for drinking or cooking did not exceed the acceptable standard for levels of lead at J-D Middle School. Action is required if lead levels above 15 parts per billion are detected at a specific water outlet. One hundred and sixty-two (162) samples were collected at the middle school. Of those, two tested above the acceptable level: one of the sinks in the girls’ bathroom in house 2 and one of the sinks in room 101 which is a science room. Both of those outlets have been turned off.  Once fixtures are replaced, the water will again be tested to assure the water meets the acceptable standard for lead levels.
 
Tecumseh Elementary School Results
We are pleased to report that all water outlets typically used for drinking or cooking did not exceed the acceptable standard for levels of lead. Action is required if lead levels above 15 parts per billion are detected at a specific water outlet. Ninety-three (93) samples were collected at Tecumseh. Of those, one tested above the acceptable level, a sink in the Pupil Personnel Services Office.  That outlet has been turned off.  Once the fixture is replaced, the water will again be tested to assure the water meets the acceptable standard for lead levels.

Moses DeWitt Elementary Results
We are pleased to report that all water outlets typically used for drinking or cooking did not exceed the acceptable standard for levels of lead. Action is required if lead levels above 15 parts per billion are detected at a specific water outlet. 52 samples were collected at Moses DeWitt. Of those, three tested above the acceptable level, a sink in the library, a sink in the computer lab, and a pot washing sink in the cafeteria kitchen. The outlets in the library and computer lab have been turned off.  Once the fixtures are replaced, the water will again be tested to assure the water meets the acceptable standard for lead levels. The pot washing sink in the kitchen will be labeled as “non-potable water for washing only,” as specified by state regulation.

Jamesville Elementary Results
We are pleased to report that all water outlets typically used for drinking or cooking did not exceed the acceptable standard for levels of lead. Action is required if lead levels above 15 parts per billion are detected at a specific water outlet. 73 samples were collected at Jamesville Elementary. Of those, two tested above the acceptable level, a sink in the teacher aide work room and a pot washing sink in the cafeteria kitchen. The outlet in the teacher aide work room has been turned off.  Once the fixture is replaced, the water will again be tested to assure the water meets the acceptable standard for lead levels. The sink in the kitchen will be labeled as “non-potable water for washing only”, as specified by state regulation.
 
High School Results
We are pleased to report that all water outlets typically used for drinking did not exceed the acceptable standard for levels of lead. Action is required if lead levels above 15 parts per billion are detected at a specific water outlet. 137 samples were collected at the high school. Of those, six tested above the acceptable level, a sink in the band room, two sinks in the kiln room, a sink in a science prep room, and a washing sink and sprayer in the cafeteria kitchen.  The outlets in the kiln room have been turned off.  The rest of the faucets will be labeled as “non-potable water for washing only”, as specified by state regulation.  Once the fixtures are replaced, the water will again be tested to assure the water meets the acceptable standard for lead levels.

Below are the results for each sample taken followed by a key to specific sample locations. More information concerning lead in drinking water can be found at the EPA website.
