East Mountain School at Carrier Clinic® Confirms Safe Drinking Water

East Mountain School at Carrier Clinic® Confirms Safe Drinking Water

With national events bringing increased attention to the issue of water quality, and in compliance with Department of Education regulations, Carrier Clinic®’s East Mountain School, located at 252 Route 601 in Belle Mead, recently tested all of the school’s drinking water and food preparation outlets for lead. Sample collection, including identifying water outlets to be tested, carefully followed the guidance given by the NJ Department of Environmental Protection.

Carrier Clinic, an NJ psychiatric hospital and recovery center, received the test results on May 23, 2017: none of the collected samples tested above the lead action level established by the US Environmental Protection Agency for lead in drinking water (15 pg/l [ppb]).

The full test results and school Principal Dr. Stacey Paulis’ letter to parents and staff detailing the lead testing initiative are available on the East Mountain School website.
