YONKERS, N.Y. -- Water faucets and fountains at several schools in Yonkers have been shut down for voluntary testing due to possible unsafe levels of lead in the water, according to lohud.com.

School district officials are not releasing which schools are being tested, but on the Yonkers website, there is a post about testing the district's water that says once the testing is complete at each school, a report will be provided to the principal, said lohud.com.

The district told l ohud.com , that once testing is completed, a letter will be sent to parents with the results. The Yonkers event comes a week after New Rochelle schools found lead in the water at one of its elementary schools, added lohud.com.
