What Are Ada and Alan Telling Us?

Our solar-powered monitoring stations have transformed Choate Pond into a real-time laboratory. Named for 19th century mathematician Ada Lovelace, and British computer scientist Alan Turing, who broke the Nazi Enigma code, the stations report water quality to our server every 15 minutes.

What is in Pace drinking water?

Here is your guide to campus drinking water. It includes a description of Pace Pleasantville water sources, applicable drinking water rules, and an archive of Annual Water Quality Reports. Because Pace Pleasantville manages the local collection and distribution of its drinking water we are considered a “community water system” under federal and state law. Pace must therefore comply with applicable governmental reporting. Educate yourself! An informed drinking water consumer is a healthy drinking water consumer. Learn more.
