RE: Mandatory water testing
On February 8, 2018, Governor Sununu signed Senate Bill 247 Prevention of Childhood Lead Poisoning. This law requires that all schools test lead in drinking water at all locations where water is available for consumption by children. The first round of testing is required to be completed by July 1, 2019, and every 5 years thereafter, until at least 3 rounds are below the standard.
I am pleased to report that the seven water sources where students would access drinking water at ARD have been tested and all have lead levels that are under the established limit and approved for consumption.
If you have any additional questions, please let me know.
