Shorts from the BOH, Feb. 13
• Carlisle School lead and copper monitoring reduced. The Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) notified the Board of Health (BOH) on February 5 that it has agreed to reduce the frequency of testing required to monitor lead and copper levels at the Carlisle Public School. The DEP letter stated that the school, in compliance with state drinking water regulations, had conducted twice-a-year testing in 2006, which showed that previously elevated lead and copper levels had dropped enough to allow for less frequent monitoring, now once every three years.
• Cross Street. The BOH reviewed and approved Innovative/Alternative (I/A) subsurface sewage disposal systems on three lots being developed by Bill Costello at Greystone Crossing on Cross Street.
