The Chappaqua Central School District announced the final results of its independent lead testing of school water.

The results just came back from the independent agency that retested the water sources within the school district. Robert E. Bell Middle School was the only school to still show signs of lead.

The independent agency retested water samples from the 76 locations that initially showed concentrations of lead over 15 ppb during the state-mandated testing.

In a letter sent to families, the interim superintendent said, "The results are back and of those 76 locations that were retested, only five science classroom lab sinks and one storage closet sink at Bell Middle School still showed levels over 15 ppb."

He explained that ‘do not drink from this faucet’ and ‘hand washing only’ signs would continue to be posted above the six drinking sources. And this summer, the pipes in the science labs will be replaced as part of a scheduled renovation project.

Visit the district’s website to see the complete report detailing the results and the corrective measures taken.
