Pennsylvania Act 39 added a new Section 742 to the Pennsylvania School code. Beginning in the 2018-2019 school year, all Pennsylvania school districts are required to conduct tests for lead in drinking water or hold a hearing to discuss lead in school facilities.
BASD is required to perform water testing tri-annually (every three years).
If there are any issues, we remediate and retest to ensure resolution. Below are the results of the tap water lead testing for EES, GES, and NHUF.
All water samples scanned for lead were below the federal Environmental Protection Agency limit of 15 ppm of lead and have passed the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection standards for safe drinking water.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our Facilities and Operations Office at 610-473-3471.
