Annsville Elementary School

December 8, 2016 Update:

The District completed the NYS required testing for Camden High School water outlets on October 18, 2016 and the results were received for review today December 8, 2016. We have attached a link to the summary report for the building ( High School Results). 
The results that were above the 15ug/L are as follows:
2 – Custodial closet hose bibbs
23 – Science lab sinks
1 – Science room prep sink
1 – Bathroom sink

Total: 27 outlets

None of the aforementioned outlets would have, or should be, used for personal water consumption.

All 27 outlets will receive signage to reiterate that they should not be used for consumption.

Should you have any further questions, you may contact our District Wide Safety Coordinator, Karl Keil, at the District Office at 315-245-1024.

The district expects additional results from the Middle School later this week and the next step of a comprehensive testing of the High School is scheduled also for this week. Results back from the High School will take about three weeks.

October 17, 2016 Update:

Today we received results back from the September 22, 2016 sampling at the Middle School.  We collected and had analysed 108 first-draw samples. Our only elevated readings, above the 15 ug/L action level, was confined to our Science room lab sinks. Those sinks have been tagged to remind student and staff not to drink from them. All other outlets are below action levels

October 11, 2016 Update:

The District has completed the NYS required testing for Camden Elementary, Annsville Elementary, McConnellsville Elementary and the Camden Middle School. As of today all results are back for the Elementary Buildings and about 1/2 of the results are back for the Middle School. We have attached a link to the summary report for each building (select link by selecting building name above). The report results showed that we had one "hand wash sink" at Camden Elementary with a result of 21 ppb and a "teacher sink" in the Camden Middle School at 17 ppb. The Federal Action level is 20 ppb and the State action level is 15 ppb. Today we shut down both sinks and are in the process of removing their faucets. The Middle School Sink will be replaced the Camden Elementary sink will be eliminated. Based on the location of these two sinks and their traditional use we are relieved and believe that no children drank any measurable amount of water from the two sites.

The district expects additional results from the Middle School later this week and the next step of a comprehensive testing of the High School is scheduled also for this week. Results back from the High School will take about three weeks.
