Water Testing Results: W.H.B. Intermediate School

  • Letter issued on Dec. 9
    Dear parents and guardians:
    In October, Queensbury Union Free School District sent letters to all student households regarding a new law that requires public schools in New York to test all water outlets currently or potentially used for drinking or cooking purposes for lead levels. You may recall the district shared that it had begun the water testing process for all Queensbury buildings, with the assistance of a state-approved laboratory.
    The district has now received the results for all four of its school buildings, including William H. Barton Intermediate School. WHBI had 57 water sources tested and found that none of the water sources had lead levels above the state’s action level of 15 parts per billion. 
    The results for all four Queensbury schools are posted online at www.queensburyschool.org/watertesting. If you have questions about water testing at WHBI, please email reply@queensburyschool.org or call the main office at (518) 824-2609.
    John Luthringer, Principal
    William H. Barton Intermediate School
