Water Lead Testing
In July of 2016, the New Jersey State Board of Education (NJBOE) adopted regulations regarding testing for lead in drinking water in all New Jersey public schools. The regulations require testing be performed within 365 days of July 13, 2016.
In keeping with our commitment to ensure a safe and healthy learning environment for our students and staff, Pemberton Township Schools implemented a compliance plan to address these new regulations well in advance of the deadline of July 2017 for all schools that were operational at that time. In addition, monthly testing is already performed on incoming municipal water and well-water that our schools use for drinking and cooking.
Pemberton Township Schools will notify parents of any test results that fall outside the allowable limits for lead in drinking water, and share the corrective action that was taken. Please click on the notification below for complete information on lead testing that has taken place and results of that testing.
Per NJBOE regulations, the next drinking water lead testing is scheduled to take place during the 2021-2022 school year.
