PAS is one of the original contractors testing schools in Newark since March 2016 for the Newark Public School System. We worked alongside the NJDEP with the development and implementation of the Sampling Plan and Quality Assurance Project Plan for Newark schools. This became the template for school implementation statewide. Current regulation is governed by NJ Department of Education (NJDOE).
In order to comply with these new regulations: 6A:26-12.4 Safe drinking water, the following linked documents are required to be created for your school(s):
These documents were developed to include the specific information required by the New Jersey Department of Education (NJDOE) for the planning, sample collection, and analysis of the water samples, as well as the reporting of results.
Precision Analytical Services, Inc. (PAS) has been certified by the NJDEP for the last 21 years for Lead testing of public drinking water and well water.
Since PAS has a wealth of analytical instrumentation, we have placed into service 5 graphite furnace atomic absorption spectrophotometers dedicated for this work and can analyze up to 300 samples per day with high sensitivity and accuracy to provide rapid turn-around-time for results.
PAS assists and provides Lead testing of drinking water for numerous public and private schools on an ongoing basis. Please contact us at 732-914-1515 for assistance with complying with these new regulations.
