Officials found elevated levels of lead in the drinking water at the Davis Elementary School

NEW ROCHELLE – Officials found elevated levels of lead in the drinking water at the Davis Elementary School.

The drinking fountains in part of the school have been shut off.

School officials became aware of the problem after they ordered tests in every school in the district due to the contaminated water issues in Flint, Michigan, and Newark, New Jersey.

Officials say they acted quickly, closing off water fountains and sinks. They then set up water coolers so students had access to drinking water.

Dr. Allan Dozor, the director of the Children’s Environmental Health Center of the Hudson Valley, has called for people to remain calm.

“I think we need to take a deep breath and put it into perspective and recognize lead in water is one of many exposures,” he said.

Instead of being overly concerned about schools, Dozer says parents should turn their attention to their own homes to see if there is any potential lead exposure there.

Administrators at New Rochelle schools say they are also working closely with the Westchester County Health Department.
