ROCKLAND COUNTY, N.Y. -- Stricter water regulations have forced Rockland County schools to shut down sinks and fountains even after working to improve lead levels just last year, according to lohud.com.

The new state standard went into effect just after districts in the county performed their own test based of the EPA's action level of 20 parts per billion. The new state requirements made the schools test at the new, lower threshold of 15 parts per billion, lohud.com reported.

In most of the cases, the fixtures have either been flushed, replaced or taken out of use permanently, lohud.com said.
