NYC Schools Should have Better Plumbing Systems to Avoid Sickness from High Levels of Lead

NYC schools are known to have high levels of lead in their water for the past recent years we need to have better plumbing systems to avoid getting sick, as students we can not afford to miss school for being sick because of the water of our school  fountains. Missing school can lead to falling behind in your classes, not only that but we can get seriously sick. Lead exposures have been linked to damages in the central and peripheral nervous system, learning disabilities, shorter stature, impaired hearing, and impaired formation and function of blood cells. We need to be able to drink from our water fountains without worrying about there being a possibility of  getting sick.
