NYS Lead in Drinking Water in Schools Update

NYS Department of Health has released updated Lead in Drinking Water Sampling provisions.

The period for compliance with the current regulation has begun as of January 1, 2023. All previous sampling is now no longer valid for compliance.

Sampling of applicable fixtures must be completed by 12/31/25, with priority given to fixtures that previously tested at levels above 5 ppb.

Sampling must be completed every three years from the date of initial sampling.

Reporting requirements remain the same, and Enviroscience Consultants clients will continue to enjoy the benefit of having their data reported on their behalf to required government agencies.

Please feel free to contact Enviroscience (info@envirohealth.org) to discuss strategies and options available to you for compliance.
