Initial lead test results are in, and it’s good news for RCS
Final sampling to conclude in October
In the wake of water quality issues found in pipes and plumbing
fixtures around the country, the Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk School
District proactively tested the water at each of its four schools
last March, to check for the presence of lead.
RCS tested water from fixtures intended for drinking or cooking
water at each school according to Environmental Protection Agency
guideline. This included water fountains, coolers and bubblers, and
sinks in all kitchens, Family and Consumer Sciences classrooms,
nurse’s offices and faculty lounges.
