A Queens school flooded by Sandy was inspected Wednesday by an independent firm after both teachers and parents raised health concerns.

The firm inspected the auditorium at P.S. 114 in Belle Harbor.

The inspection found "light mold" in the stairwell and on parts of the stage.

Inspectors called for the removal of materials like water-logged cork boards, moulding and paneling.

The firm also tested the school's drinking water.

It found that 12 of its 14 water fountains were normal, but two tested high for copper.

It recommended those two be shut down and checked out by a plumber.

The firm says follow-up inspections will be needed.
