Remediation Letter for Elevated Levels of Lead Outlets

Principal Minhas has asked the PTA to share the following communications from the Deputy Chancellor.

On October 13, 2017 and March 02, 2018, every potential source of water for drinking or preparing food at P.S./I.S. 499 – Queens was tested for lead. The laboratory results showed elevated levels of lead in 2 of the 146 samples of water taken and tested from outlets in the building.

Each affected fixture at P.S./I.S. 499 was taken out of service on February 15, 2017, and the remediation work was completed.

On June 01, 2018, the remediated fixtures were tested and the final laboratory results indicate that all samples taken and tested were below the action level of 15 ppb.

Families can visit to learn more about the robust protocol we use to ensure the safety of drinking water in each and every school, as well as to look up water test results for their child’s school.
