LITTLE FERRY, N.J. -- After Newark schools were found to have lead in the drinking water, Memorial and Washington schools were then tested -- and came up negative.

Lead was detected in Newark Schools on March 10, and Little Ferry Superintendent Frank Scarafile contacted the Bergen County Department of Health that same day, for assistance in testing the district's water. The BCHD directed him to the water provider, SUEZ, formerly United Water.

The next day, a representative from SUEZ came to the district and tested the water in Memorial and Washington schools. Both schools came back for lead as "Not Detected." Click here for the testing results from SUEZ.
