Hilton Central School District water quality testing results available

Hilton Central School District has concluded water quality testing at all of its facilities. Test results show elevated levels of lead in 10 of 493 fixtures district-wide. Of those 10 fixtures, only three are drinking water sources and one of those was not in use. Each of those affected water dispensers was disconnected and replaced. The others sources are low use and have been remediated.

Our voluntary testing process was conducted by LaBella Associates, a licensed, independent engineering, architecture and environmental planning firm that tested each locationís water fixtures for lead. The test samples were sent to an independent laboratory for analysis and reporting. The reports are available below.

The New York State Department of Health and the Monroe County Department of Public Health report that the amount of lead found in home and school taps is not a significant source of lead. There are no known cases of lead poisoning through water consumption in Monroe County.

The Hilton School District will conduct lead testing every five years as required by law. The safety of our students and staff is our top priority and will remain so in the future.
