2020 Cohort Lead Testing

In accordance with State law, all schools must test for lead in water every five years. In fall 2018, the Department of Education (DOE) began a new testing cycle, which will conclude in December 2020. 


Your school building has been selected to be a part of the 2020 cohort. Below, please find a letter (and translations) to send home. This letter will provide additional details surrounding the DOE’s lead testing protocols and procedures.  


Once the building has been tested and the lab results received, you will receive a notification of the results. In any building where test results show even one water fixture above the action level, the DOE will implement its standard response protocol.


Families and staff should rest assured that New York City drinking water is safe and of the highest quality in the world. New York City’s water meets or exceeds all Federal and State standards. In addition, the DOE works with other City agencies to ensure there is safe drinking water in schools. The safety and well-being of students and staff is our highest priority.
