Lead Water Updates

In order to ensure that all Delaware children and school staff have access to safe and clean drinking water, the State of Delaware is collaborating with federal and local partners. As part of this effort, the Delaware Department of Education and the Delaware Division of Public Health launched a sampling initiative in October 2020, funded by a grant from the Environmental Protection Agency, to determine the levels of lead in the drinking water systems of Delaware schools.

After recent testing, NCCVT immediately remediated and/or removed the four areas identified with elevated levels of lead: 2nd floor staff lounge sink at Marshallton, 1st floor water fountain near room 113 at Marshallton, 1st floor sink in an ESL classroom at Marshallton, and female locker room at Delcastle.

 

NCCVT is scheduled for re-testing during the first week of March 2023.
