Student | Taylor Novick-Finder Faculty | Leonel Lima Ponce, Ira Stern School of Architecture, Graduate Center for Planning and the Environment
This report models and analyzes the impact of remediating NY State school drinking water outlets to a new reduced action level of 5-ppb. The data analysis explores common characteristics of school districts with high levels of lead contamination, and their relationship with race and class. This report is an accompaniment to the Lead in School Drinking Water online Portal, a tool produced for the client, the New York League of Conservation Voters.
