Drinking Water Shut-off in All Ithaca Schools

Local News

In light of lead concerns at two elementary schools, the Ithaca City School System has turned off drinking water sources in all of its school.

The district is working to calm concerns about lead contamination in school water supplies. Wednesday school officials announced that some school buildings have not been tested for lead in the water since 2005.

Bottled water will now be provided to all students and staff.

High lead levels in drinking water fountains and some classroom sinks turned up at both the Caroline and Enfield Elementary Schools. Parents complained that they were not made aware of the test results in a timely manner.
