Water Testing

Update 12/19/16: Click here

Update 11/30/16: Click here

The health and safety of our students and staff is our top priority. The school district began testing its drinking water outlets, such as fountains and sinks, in May of 2016. The tests were performed to determine whether excess amounts of lead could be present in drinking water. Water received from municipal water sources is tested on a regular basis for contaminants such as lead, but testing individual fixtures in buildings has shown that lead from piping, solder, or fixtures can leach into the water in small amounts after it has entered the building, and before it is used for consumption.

The school district continues to test potential drinking water sources, but we would like to share the results that we have received thus far. Of the 65 results we have received from the laboratory so far, three outlets were above the New York State Department of Health’s threshold of 15 parts per billion of lead in water.

Greenville High School: 1. Kitchen Sink, Cold
  2. Kitchen Sink, Hot
  3. Home and Careers Sink
   
MS/HS Water Test Results [updated 10/27/16]
Elementary School Water Test Results

All of the above fixtures have been taken out of service and have been replaced. Follow-up samples have been scheduled, and these fixtures will NOT be put back into service until the new sample results show levels at or below the action level of 15 parts per billion. Please be assured that all of the high-priority sources being used at our schools are below the state threshold for lead.

We will continue to work with our Safety and Health consultant, Needham Risk Management Resource Group, LLC, and the Greene County Department of Health as the District receives the remaining sample results. The District will post these laboratory results on our website within the next several weeks.

For more information on lead in water please refer to the link below at the New York State Department of Health. https://www.health.ny.gov/publications/2508/

Helping to instill the understanding that science is everywhere, this inquiry-based approach fosters "whole systems" thinkers. This summer, at the Camp Invention program, children will learn how to think like inventors, problem-solve, collaborate, and create - all while having tons of FUN! Highlights of this summer's program, called Epic, can be found at https://www.youtube.com/user/CampInvention.
