Supervisor Randazzo has been in contact with a representative of the State Health Department regarding the concerns of water quality in the greater Newburgh area. The representative stated that tests have been conducted in the Cornwall area starting with Beaver Dam Lake and continued to the Moodna stream, and tests will be conducted on the Village of Cornwall on Hudson water supply at the Taylor Road wells. These tests are being conducted as a precautionary measure to evaluate any possible adverse effects on water in the Cornwall area. Thus far, the tests have not indicated any issues of concern. The State Health Department will be generating a report within the next week for our information and a status update. The State Health Department is coordinating their efforts with the Orange County Health Department as well.
