Statewide Lead Level Testing in Schools

School districts across Morris County and statewide will be required to test for lead levels in the water supply in all schools starting in September, according to a new state program. The tests will be conducted by labs hired by school districts, which will be reimbursed by the state. The state Department of Education and state Department of Health are leading this effort.

The National Weather Service has issued a Hazardous Weather Outlook for Morris County. It is possible that we will experience rain showers and thunder storms mid to late afternoon today. Some of these storms have the potential to produce locally damaging winds and hail The most threatening weather is anticipated to hold to the South, but strong storms are possible, with a severe one not ruled out. The main threat will be damaging wind gusts, at 40-60 mph. However, scattered small hail is a good bet as well. Due to the fast moving nature of the storms, flooding is not anticipated. By 6PM, the showers/storms will move out, but drizzle lingers into the evening.
