The New York State Department of Health has advised the Town of New Windsor that low levels of PFOA and PFOS were detected in the Town’s Butterhill well location. The levels found are below the EPA lifetime health advisory and the NYS Drinking Water Quality Council’s recommended levels for such substances. Accordingly, the DOH says the water is acceptable for drinking.

Nevertheless, out of an abundance of caution and in light of the precedent set when a similar situation arose with Kroll Well in 2017, the Town has decided to restart the Riley Road treatment Plant to begin using water from the Catskill Aqueduct. As soon as the Riley Road Plant is up and running, the Butterhill wells and treatment facility will be shut down until such time as the Town can be assured the water from these wells are non-detect for PFOA and PFOS.

If you have any questions, please contact David Zagon, Town Attorney, at 845-563-4630
