Description

This dataset shows the school water lead sampling and results information reported by each NYS public school and BOCES (excluding New York City). It details the summary information on the samples taken, and the results returned from laboratory analyses. This will be updated on a continuing basis by each school. In accordance with legislation, the school districts have to sample their water for possible lead contamination and report the results to parents, the state Department of Health, and local government officials. The Lead Testing in School Drinking Water regulations may be found at this site: https://www.governor.ny.gov/sites/governor.ny.gov/files/atoms/files/LeadTestingRegs.pdf. To view the corresponding data set which lists all school buildings with lead free plumbing, click here https://health.data.ny.gov/Health/Lead-Testing-in-School-Drinking-Water-Buildings-wi/5hbp-c6bb.
The data is self-reported by the schools in response to a Department of Health electronic survey, and transferred to Health Data NY as is without edits or redaction. Schools will update their information on an ongoing basis as their water sampling progresses and the laboratory analysis results are reported back to them. This dataset displays the most recently reported data by schools as and when the data is available.
This Dataset does not include information for New York City Schools. The New York City Department of Education (NYC DoE) has not completed testing. NYC DoE has indicated that it is sampling all outlets in compliance with Subpart 67-4. As of January 26, 2017, NYC DoE has submitted information on 541 buildings. The Attachment section under the “About” tab lists the NYC School buildings to see a list of the buildings for which at least partial information has been submitted by NYC DoE. Once results are complete, they will be incorporated in Health Data NY.
