New Jersey’s largest school system shuts off water after lead found

Published Wednesday March 9

Lead was detected in nearly half of the schools in the Newark Public Schools system, the state’s largest, with about 35,000 students. Fountains will remain closed until more testing is conducted, remarked Lawrence Hajna, a DEP spokesperson.

The school system commented other water sources have been brought in for use.

Of the about three hundred testing samples taken at thirty school buildings, 59 had lead levels above the federal government’s threshold level that requires further action, including testing.
