To the Students, Families, and Staff of the Beverly Schools:
In an effort to be proactive, the Beverly Public Schools has partnered with the MassDEP
(Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection) through a voluntary grant funded
program to test lead and copper levels in the drinking sources at all schools. As part of the program
we will test every possible drinking source in all of our buildings.
The testing in all buildings has been completed at this time and we will inform you of the results as
they are made available to us. All of our results will be posted on our district web site
www.beverlyschools.org. In addition, all information reported to MassDEP through eDEP and the
reporting tool will be made available on line at
We are pleased to be part of this program to ensure safe drinking water for our students, faculty
and staff. The district and the city water department are working together and will comply with all
recommendations as results are returned. Additionally, we will continue to regularly test our water
quality as part of our ongoing facilities maintenance program.
