Analysis for Lead in Drinking Water
The quality of our drinking water is of paramount importance to everyone, and public awareness of the issue of lead in drinking water has been magnified by recent events in Michigan. Legislation has been signed into law in New York State that all schools built prior to 1986 must conduct lead testing of their drinking water. Elementary schools must be tested for lead by the end of September 2016, while the remaining schools must be tested by October 31st, 2016. To read more, please click here. In order to help each school meet this timeline, RJ Lee Group is offering discounted pricing for analysis of lead levels in drinking water for all New York schools.
Why Has New York Enacted the New Guidelines?
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommends analysis of at least 250 ml of drinking water for schools and child care facilities. The agency states that even at low levels, lead has been shown to adversely impact health, most particularly that of young children and infants. Low levels have been linked to damage to the nervous system, learning disabilities, and other issues. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends actions be taken when a child's blood contains 5 micrograms per deciliter or more of lead. The EPA 's action level is 15 ppb for public water systems.
