Lead in Water Testing
New York State Laws and regulations require all public school districts and Boards of Cooperative Educational Services (BOCES) to test drinking water for lead contamination, and to take action if lead exceeds the actionable threshold. If any fixture exceeds the lead action level (15 micrograms per liter), it must be immediately taken out of service until actions are taken to mitigate the lead levels.
Syosset Central School District completed testing for lead in water in March 2020. None of the District’s 53 filtered “hydration stations” that are students’ and staff’s main sources of drinking water exceeded the limits.
