What We Do?

Lead in drinking water has gained national attention with problems in Flint, Michigan, and Newark, New Jersey, to name a few. Lead can enter drinking water when plumbing materials that contain lead corrode, especially where the water has high acidity or low mineral content that corrodes pipes and fixtures. The most common sources of lead in drinking water are lead pipes, faucets, and fixtures. Both lead and copper are common contaminants that may leach from facility piping or solder, even if water is supplied by the city or a private company.

In response, the State of New Jersey has implemented rigorous water testing requirements at child care centers and schools. Further, Paul Sakson Environmental recommends drinking water testing at other critical sites, such as residences and occupied commercial establishments.

SAKSON has collected drinking water samples at hundreds of child care centers to comply with their three-year testing requirement. Samples are collected, analyzed by an NJDEP Certified Laboratory, and SAKSON prepares all the required forms and documentation to make complying hassle-free. And, of course, if there’s an issue with a contaminant, SAKSON provides easy and low-cost solutions to mitigate a problem.
