The East Greenbush Central School District received water quality testing results for Columbia High School and now has reports for all district schools.

The school district began testing potential drinking water sources last month in accordance with state law to determine the amount of lead that exists in water.

Of the 585 results we have received from the laboratory, 44 outlets were above the New York State Department of Health’s threshold of 15 parts per billion of lead in water. It is important to note that the 15 parts per billion threshold is an actionable level, meaning any outlets above that mark must be addressed by schools.

Any outlets above 15 parts per billion of lead will be remediated and resampled. Remediation efforts include running the water from affected outlets to flush the system, replacement of fixtures, filters and in some cases piping, installation of bottle fillers, and other renovations as part of our current capital project.

Bell Top Elementary
Testing completed and no outlets above 15 parts per billion.
