Water Testing and Remediation

Water quality testing for lead has been completed at all District schools in compliance with New York State legislation enacted in September, 2016.  All five elementary schools were tested by the deadline of September 30 and Troy Middle School and Troy High School were tested by their deadline of October 31.

The District tested 868 water outlets, including all drinking fountains, sinks and ice machines in each of our buildings. The sample and analysis is conducted by a certified water testing agency.

Outlets that test higher than the newly allowable threshold of 15 micrograms of lead per liter (mcg/L), are isolated immediately to prevent consumption until we have the opportunity to investigate further.

In addition to sharing our test results with parents, guardians and staff, we also shared all data with the Rensselaer County Department of Health and Questar III’s Health & Safety Service.
Our complete lab reports will be posted below as we receive them.
