Rowan University is committed to keeping the University community informed about campus water quality. The following links include comprehensive results, summary results and “grab” sample results. Although they do not meet standard protocols for water testing, grab samples simulate the habits of person getting a drink from a fountain or faucet.
TEST RESULTS: Please view the campus water testing map of Sept. 5, which shows the majority of buildings on campus have tested below the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s 15ppb threshold for lead.
The PDF files posted on this page show results of tests conducted beginning Aug. 31, labeled by building and test date. The University sampled at least one water source in each building. Building-by-building results are in the testing summary spreadsheet and Technical Data section.
The reports are complex and use technical terms typical of professional laboratory documentation; however, in its commitment to transparency the University is releasing them in their original form. As Rowan continues with testing on the Glassboro, Camden and Stratford campuses, it will provide results from all buildings.
Results are reported in ppb (parts per billion), which is equivalent to microgram per liter (ug/L).
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency/N.J. Department of Environmental Protection Action Level is 15ppb.
ND stands for “None Detected,” which means that the results are below the laboratory’s limit of analytical detection.
