The Voorheesville School District held a public forum on the water test results on, Monday, September 19, 2016 at 7:00PM in the Elementary School large gym.  Representatives of the Albany County Health Department and the district's water testing firm CT Male Associates did attend, along with Superintendent Brian Hunt and Director of Facilities Mike Goyer.  This forum did provide an opportunity to ask questions and discuss the steps the district is taking to remediate the lead levels in the water at certain locations in the Elementary School.  All members of the public were invited to attend and participate in the discussion.

 

Please see attached letter from Mr. Hunt regarding the water test results.

Mr. Hunt Water Test Results Letter

 

There were no issues reported at the Middle School or High School, however, there were 3 locations at the Elementary School that were above the legally required maximum level for lead of 15 parts per billion.  Those three locations are the sink in classroom #114, the sink in the transportation office, and the large sink in the Elementary School kitchen.  All three locations have been shut off. 

 

Drinking fountains and bottle fills at the Elementary School were tested, and they were below the legally required maximum level of 15 parts per billion.

 

 

The continued safety of our students and staff is vitally important to us.  We will keep you updated as this process continues.
