Information on Lead Testing

Water Testing

The Health and Safety of students and staff at the Warrensburg Central School District is our number one priority. This post is to update you on a recent health topic.

As you may be aware, on September 6, 2016 Governor Cuomo signed legislation which requires all public schools in New York State to test all potable water sources for lead. On February 17, 2021 the district obtained water samples from all sources of water from the Elementary School and all sources from the Jr/Sr High School. The samples were analyzed by Pace Analytical LLC, which is certified by the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH). The results of the testing were released to the district on February 25, 2021.  From these results, 5 sources in the Elementary School tested above the maximum contamination level set by the EPA and NYSDOH of 15 parts per billion. 

Upon receiving the test results, the District immediately took action which included notifying faculty and staff not to use the water for consumption.  Additionally, a sign was posted stating not to consume the water. 

While we know that this information may cause some concern, we are taking the necessary steps to address the situation and confirm the safety of water throughout the district.  There is nothing that we take more seriously than the well=being of our students and staff.

We encourage you to contact the District Office if you have any questions.
