2020 Lead in Drinking Water Test Results

Dear Parents, Staff and Faculty:

The 2020 lead in drinking water testing has been completed for Wynantskill UFSD.

The District tested 39 water outlets, which consisted of drinking fountains, bottle fillers, sinks and ice machines throughout the building. Sample collection was conducted by our Questar III BOCES Health & Safety Specialist and analysis was conducted by Pace Analytical Services.

Of the 39 samples drawn within the school building, one sample tested above the allowable 15 micrograms per liter (mcg/L) as per the drinking water regulation.  We have isolated that faucet to prevent consumption until we have the opportunity to investigate, correct and resample. The faucet is identified below:

Date Sampled Building Location Outlet Results
November 7, 2020 Gardner-Dickinson School Kitchen Sink 21.2 ug/L

The sink is now prohibited from consumption until further correction and retesting is completed.

In addition to sharing our test results with parents, guardians and staff, all data has been shared with the Rensselaer County Department of Health and Questar III BOCES Health & Safety Office.

The Wynantskill UFSD is committed to providing a safe and healthy learning environment for all students and staff members. We will inform you of the resampling result of the kitchen sink when it becomes available. Our complete lab reports are posted on our website.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have.
