School district's water passes tests for lead, copper

Independent lab tests show that water within Schoharie Central School District buildings is below action levels for lead and copper. The district had the water tested in April and May of 2016 to be proactive when drinking water issues surfaced in other areas of the U.S.

"Although we were not required at the time to do so, we ordered tests of our water last spring as a proactive approach to keeping our students and staff safe and healthy," said Superintendent David Blanchard. "We are pleased that water drawn from several sinks and drinking fountains in our elementary and high school buildings was found to be below action levels for lead and copper."

The water samples were drawn after the minimum eight hours of standing time and tested by a state-certified laboratory. Schoharie Central School District receives its water from the Village of Schoharie, a public water supply.

Note: In September 2016, samples of water drawn from nearly 300 sources in SCS buildings were sent to an independent, state-approved lab in accordance with a new state law that requires public schools to test for lead levels in all water sources currently or potentially used for drinking or cooking purposes. Results will be reported on this website.
