Earlier today the Glens Falls Post Star correctly reported that "the village received a violation because the water was not tested for copper or lead in 2012. That year is the most recent year for which results were publicly available." While the tests were submitted to the State, they were submitted after the deadline and therefore rejected by the State.
A 2013 report submitted by the JH Consulting Group of Newtonville, New York regarding Lead and Copper testing of the Village water supply can be read here. The report states that the "parameters are less than the associated Action Levels listed in the New York State Sanitary Code. You will be able to begin/or continue reduced monitoring. Your next monitoring will be June 2016."
While New York State requires that the Village of Greenwich test for Lead and Copper every three years, the Village Board will discuss running the tests on a yearly basis at our monthly board meeting on March 14th.
Earlier this month the Village submitted tests for the presence of PFOA, which has become a major concern throughout the country. We expect the results to arrive by the end of the month. Despite not having any manufacturers using this chemical locally, the Village thought it best to run the tests to assure local residents.
