Melanie Lekocevic is reporting in the Ravena News-Herald the Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk School District has tested its water to check for the presence of lead. Testing was conducted in May and June at all four district schools. The test results indicated the water falls within federal requirements so no remediation is needed. “Our goal in May was to test to make sure our schools’ water is safe. We followed EPA standards with our sampling, but now, with the more stringent New York state standards, we are expanding our tests,” Ravena Superintendent Robert Libby said. In September, Governor Andrew Cuomo signed legislation requiring that all school districts test drinking water for lead contamination. Read the full story in the Ravena News-Herald.
