Water Testing Update
Dear Islip Community,
As you know, Islip engaged in lead in the water testing of all drinking
water outlets over the summer, and we had an excellent report. Per my
September letter, all water sources (water fountains and faucets) that
required corrective action based on the test results have been replaced
or removed from service. New York State is now requiring that districts test all
non-potable water outlets, as well. This second phase of testing has
been completed in conjunction with JC Broderick, and we are waiting for
EPA guidelines include a recommendation that all non-potable water
sources be identified. Non-potable water sources include lavatory sinks,
custodial closets, science rooms, classroom sinks and water spigots.
The district is in the process of placing stickers at each non-potable
source at all buildings in accordance with these guidelines. Please know
that the presence of these signs does not indicate that the water from these
outlets is unsafe. Should we need to correct anything in the future, we
will surely do so, as the health and safety of the staff and students
is a top priority.
Should you have any questions or concerns about the district's water
quality or the ongoing testing and notification procedures, please do
not hesitate to contact Mr. Brian Graham, our plant facilities administrator, at 631-650-8430.
