OSSINING, N.Y. -- The Ossining school district has hired Quality Environmental Solutions and Technologies Inc. to test the water in the schools for lead.
The firm will test drinking water locations, including water foundations and sinks in classrooms, kitchens, faculty rooms and various offices. The testing will occur in each school during the weekend of May 14.
After the water samples are collected, the district will provide a report with the results. School officials say water testing is not required, but they feel strongly about ensuring that the water is safe for consumption by students and staff.
