NEW ROCHELLE, NY -- Tests of six elementary schools in New Rochelle conducted by Louis Berger Group, a global engineering firm, show elevated levels in some water sources in the schools. As a result, the water has been turned off at each location within the school and bottled water will be provided to students until new water-filling stations can be installed.

"We expect to have the new water stations installed at every school as quickly as possible," said Assistant Superintendent for Business & Administration Jeff White. "Certainly before the end of the current school year."
