Lead In School Drinking Water
10 NYCRR Subpart 67-4: Lead In School Drinking Water
Effective December 6, 2016, New York State required all school districts and boards of cooperative educational services, including those already classified as a public water system under 10 NYCRR Subpart 5-1, to test potable water for lead contamination and to develop and implement a lead remediation plan, where applicable. For additional information on ESM's compliance with 10 NYCRR Subpart 67-4: Lead In School Drinking Water, please see below.
For more information on the New York State 10 NYCRR Subpart 67-4: Lead In School Drinking Water regulation, please select here.
In accordance with Subpart 67-4, ESM has retained J.C. Broderick & Associates, Inc. (JCB) to perform lead testing and analysis of the water outlets in all school district buildings in both 2020 and 2016.
In order to test for lead in school drinking water, ESM and JCB utilized Total Lead by Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)/ELAP Method 200.5 at EMSL Analytical Laboratories located in Carle Place, New York.
The Environmental Laboratory Approval Program (ELAP) was established under Section 502 of the NYS Public Health Law and is responsible for the certification of laboratories performing environmental analyses on samples originating from New York State, thus ensuring the accuracy and reliability of these analyses. EMSL is accredited under ELAP with Certificate #11469.
Method 200.5 is entitled “Determination of Trace Elements in Drinking Water by Axially Viewed Inductively Coupled Plasma-Atomic Emission Spectrometry.” Commonly referred to as ICP, this method is only one of the several methods approved by the EPA and NYS for analyzing drinking water. This particular method makes use of an ICP source and a detector. Water from the samples collected are nebulized and introduced into the plasma. Any Lead in the sample ionizes and releases electrons in a very specific wavelength that is captured by a detector. Since the intensity of the electrons released is proportional to the concentration, the laboratory can accurately report the concentrations of lead in each water sample analyzed.

New York State Education Law Section 409-H, effective July 1, 2001, requires all public and non-public elementary and secondary schools to provide written notification to all persons in parental relation, faculty and staff regarding the potential use of pesticides periodically throughout the school year. The Eastport-South Manor Central School District is required to maintain a list of persons in parental relation, faculty and staff who wish to receive 48-hour written notification of certain pesticide applications. The following pesticide applications are not subject to prior notification requirements:
• When a school remains unoccupied for a continuous 72 hours following an application;
• Antimicrobial products;
• Non-volatile rodenticides in tamper-resistant bait stations in areas inaccessible to children;
• Silica gels and other nonvolatile ready-to-use pastes, foams or gels in areas inaccessible to children;
• Boric acid and disodium octaborate tetrahydrate;
• The application of EPA-designated biopesticides;
• The application of EPA-designated exempt materials under 40CFR152.25;
• The use of aerosol products with a directed spray in containers of 18 fluid ounces or less when used to protect individuals from an imminent threat from stinging and biting insects, including venomous spiders, bees, wasps and hornets.
In the event of an emergency application necessary to protect against an imminent threat to human health, a good faith effort will be made to supply written notification to those on the 48-hour prior notification list. If you would like to receive 48-hour prior notification of pesticide applications that are scheduled to occur in your school, please send your name, address, day and evening phone numbers, email address and the name of the school to:Assistant Director of Plant FacilitiesEastport-South Manor Administrative Offices
149 Dayton Avenue
Manorville, NY 11949
Written notification must be provided to all persons in parental relation and staff at the following intervals throughout the school year: at the beginning of the school year, within two school days of the end of winter recess, within two school days of the end of spring recess and within ten days of the end of the school year.
The following pesticide applications have been performed:
AHERA is a federal law enacted in 1987 that requires all school districts to re-inspect for asbestos-containing building materials. Our facilities have been inspected and response actions were developed to ensure a continued safe environment for our students and employees. Activities include training of custodial and maintenance staff to prevent disturbance of asbestos and periodical re-inspection and surveillance activities by trained personnel. The AHERA Management Plan is available for your review at the office of the Plant Facilities Administrator, located in the ESM Administrative Offices at 149 Dayton Avenue, Manorville, NY.
