Dear St. Edward the Confessor School Parents,

Please be advised that we have retained the services of an environmental firm to perform Lead in Water sampling of our school building. We are happy to inform you that the potable water outlets, that are water outlets that are regularly used for drinking and cooking, currently servicing our school building meet the 15ppb action level of lead established by the New York State Department of Health (NYS DOH) in section 67-4.2 of their emergency regulation “Lead Testing in School Drinking Water” of title 10 of the official compilation of Codes, Rules, and Regulations of the State of New York.

These high priority water outlets sampled revealed no concentration of lead above the NYS DOH action level. A copy of the sampling report is available for you in the school office.

The remaining medium-priority outlets (ex. Bathroom and classroom sinks) and low-priority water outlets (ex. Utility sinks and house attachments) within the school building shall be placarded; these are the water outlets that were not sampled and not used for drinking or cooking. These outlets should be used only for hand washing, cleaning, or instruction. This signage includes a pictograph that has been proven to effectively communicate this message to smaller children.


Mr. Vincent Albrecht
