Water Safety

New York City water is safe. Families of students attending Department of Education (DOE) schools and staff of those schools should rest assured that our drinking water is of the highest quality in the world. New York City’s water meets or exceeds all Federal and State standards. The City’s water is tested over 500,000 times each year. In addition, the DOE works with other City agencies to make sure our students have safe drinking water in schools. There has never been a known case of lead poisoning due to water in New York City schools. The safety and well-being of students and staff is our highest priority.
