Lackawanna Public Schools

2016-17 Lead Testing Overview 
 
In September 2016, New York State passed legislation requiring all public school districts and boards of cooperative educational services (BOCES) to test potable water systems for lead contamination. Should any elevated levels of lead be found, a district must then take action to remedy the situation back to safe levels of less than 15 parts per billion (ppb).
 
In order to comply with New York State and the Department of Health, the Lackawanna City School District followed protocol and tested potable water sources from all Lackawanna City School District Buildings. Tests were conducted at the McKinley Administrative Building, Martin Road Elementary, Truman Elementary, Lackawanna Middle School and Lackawanna High School.
 
The safety and security of Lackawanna Public Schools' students, families, faculty, staff and community are the District’s main priority. We are taking responsive action to ensure each water source is in compliance with NYS water standards.
