In addition to the regular testing associated with our annual water report that is posted on this site every year (see Water/Sewer tab), The New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) and Albany County Department of Health (ACDOH) this year sampled for the presence of perflourinated compounds (PFCs) that are commonly known as PFOA and/or PFOC. These are the compounds that made the news recently when they were found in very high concentrations in Hoosick Falls and surrounding areas. This testing occurred in June and the report was made available to us this week. While small concentrations were found in our water, the report will show that we are well below the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) acceptable levels and our “water is acceptable for all uses”. Although the Health Department has assured us that our water is safe for all uses now, as an additional precaution we have been consulting with area municipal water plant operators and the Albany County Department of Health to look into adding additional layers of carbon filters (we already have some) to our process so that we can remove all of it. Carbon filters have been used to lower concentrations in other communities with high readings and have proven very effective.
