Lead testing at Long Island schools
Beginning in May, Newsday and News12 Long Island surveyed 124 Long Island school districts via telephone and by email to determine if any had conducted tests for elevated lead levels. Of the 105 districts that responded to the survey, 21 found that at least one location had levels beyond Environmental Protection Agency guidelines. Many of the districts are still in the middle of testing drinking water, or arranging for testing to begin. Here are details on the 105 school districts that responded to the survey, including which had to make changes based on test results. Nineteen districts did not respond.
