KEARNY SCHOOL DISTRICT - INDEPENDENT WATER TESTING RESULTS

KEARNY SCHOOL DISTRICT  - INDEPENDENT WATER TESTING RESULTS

Tectonic Engineering & Surveying Consultants P.C. has completed the pilot sampling and analysis of potable water collected from multiple Point of Use (POU) points at a total of seven (7) Kearny Schools. The sampling was performed to verify the quality of drinking water provided to Kearny Schools, specifically the levels of lead. This initial pilot test was implemented as a recommended progressive approach in conjunction with public communication.

Sampling and analysis of drinking water points of use (POUs) for lead was performed by Kearny Board of Education (KBOE)  all district public schools in response to public concerns.

Based on the testing results, the levels of lead found in the water taken from all sample points did not exceed appropriate limits. The reported lead concentrations were compared to both the public water service AL and the schools-recommended CL value.

 

Lead was not detected above the recommended  AL  of  15 PPB  or the  CL of  20 PPB in

Any of the fourteen (14)  POUs from a total of seven (7) different facilities

The intent of this information is to clarify the facts regarding an incident that occurred Thursday, October 6, 2016 at Kearny High School:

 This afternoon six students in a class of approximately 20 were affected by fumes from a generator that was being used on the construction site.  The teacher had opened the window briefly when the classroom became stuffy.  As soon as the smell came into the room, the teacher alertly closed the window.  However, when some students complained about not feeling well, the teacher immediately notified the office, the classroom was evacuated and the generator was turned off.  The affected students were escorted to the nurse who observed symptoms that warranted further examination; an ambulance was called, parents were contacted and the fire department was notified. Because our students' health and safety is our primary concern, the decision to send the children to the hospital for evaluation was chosen.  

 The area was tested by an independent air quality company, Briggs Associates, who were on-site for random air sampling tests and zero levels of carbon monoxide were found.  Additionally, the Kearny Fire Department walked the entire building and found no elevated levels of carbon monoxide. 

 Finally, last week a 20 day notice regarding the removal of non-friable asbestos in certain areas of the high school was posted.  This notice is required by law.  The asbestos removal will commence sometime after October 20th.  Unfortunately, rumors have been spread that there is a major asbestos removal taking place at the high school beginning on Monday.  This is NOT the case.  Anyone seeking information on the safety of non-friable asbestos removal is welcomed to contact the office of our Plant Director, Mark Bruscino, at 201-955-5011.

 Please know the safety and security of our students and staff remains our top priority.

 Sincerely,

 Patricia Blood

Superintendent of Schools
