Warwick Valley Middle School

Results of testing on water samples collected 10/17/2016

At Warwick Valley Middle School, six out of 104 faucets were found to exceed the new allowable measure of 15 micrograms of lead per liter, typically referred to as “parts per billion (ppb)”. Two of the middle school’s drinking fountains used primarily by faculty exceeded the allowable limits; no student water fountains exceeded allowable limits.

The required signage saying, “Do not drink” was posted above sinks with affected faucets. All those fixtures will be replaced as soon as possible, and retested before being put back into service. The District will ensure that all students and staff have an adequate supply of water for drinking and cooking.
