Welcome to the Sachem Facilities Department
Dear Sachem Families:
The Sachem Central School District is committed to protecting the health
and well-being of all of our students and staff. In compliance with the
New York State Department of Health (NYS DOH) regulation titled Lead
Testing in School Drinking Water (10 NYCRR Subpart 67-4), we recently
performed an updated inventory of all water outlets in the school
district and another round of sampling of all applicable water outlets.
As you may be aware, these water outlets were previously tested in 2016.
Sampling of potable water outlets (water outlets used for cooking or
drinking) was performed by our environmental consulting and testing
firm. In an abundance of caution, the district also sampled non-potable
outlets (such as bathroom/classroom/science room sinks) throughout the
school buildings. While not typically used as drinking water, it was
decided that the sampling of these non-potable outlets be performed in
the rare instance that a child might use them for drinking.
Any outlet which revealed concentrations of lead above the New York
State's action level of 15 parts per billion has been removed from
service or otherwise restricted until a proper action and/or remediation
Details pertaining to these outlets can be referenced in the summary
below. This chart will be updated as work and re-testing is completed.
As always, if you have any questions, comments or concerns, please contact the facilities department at 631-471-1370.
