District conducts required water testing

To ensure that the water used in schools is safe, New York law requires  school districts to regulary test lead levels at all water outlets currently or potentially used for drinking or cooking in buildings occupied by students.

Regulations call for testing every five years, and the Liberty Central School District is currently conducting those tests.

Water samples will be collected thoughout Liberty’s school buildings and submitted to a state approved lab for testing.

Districts are required to report the results to the state Department of Health, the state Education Department and the local health department, and to post the results—along with remediation plans, if required—on the district website.

In addition, should lead levels in any of Liberty’s school buildings exceed acceptible levels our families will immediately receive notification in writing and the information will be posted here on this website.
