Notice of PFOA MCL Exceedance

Apr 19, 2024

Testing of our public water system found the chemical perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) in drinking water in 2 individual wells at 10.3 and 11.2 parts per trillion (ppt) respectively. This is above New York State’s maximum contaminant level (MCL) of 10.0 ppt for PFOA in public drinking water systems. Consuming drinking water with PFOA at or somewhat above the MCL does not pose a significant short term health risk. Your water continues to be acceptable for all uses. Veolia is working on a strict timetable to reduce levels below the MCL.
