New York City officials want parents to know the water at city schools is safe. Education officials sent a letter home with students about a new website parents can visit listing lead-testing results at both public and private schools built before 1986, when all lead pipe plumbing was eliminated.
"New York City’s water is of the highest quality, meeting or exceeding all federal and State standards," the letter reads. "The City regulates its own watershed that surrounds — and protects — our reservoirs, and the water is tested over 500,000 times each year at various points throughout the system."
