NYSDOH declares Cornwall-on-Hudson water “acceptable for all uses”
Cornwall-on-Hudson, NY – The New York State Department of Health (DOH) recently issued a report on the Cornwall-on-Hudson water system pronouncing its water is “acceptable for all uses.”
The DOH tested the Cornwall-on-Hudson drinking water on samples collected on Sept. 29, 2018, for perfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) as a follow-up to testing completed in 2016. The agency conducted the tests to identify and test drinking water systems near facilities that may be frequent users of PFAS, such as airports.
The DOH report indicated that the follow-up testing showed levels well below the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency health advisory of 70 parts per trillion of PFOA (perfluorooctanoic acid) and PFOS (perfluorooctanesulfonic acid) combined. Based on results, “no actions are necessary to reduce exposure.” In addition, these results are well below the maximum contaminant level (MCL) of 10 parts per trillion (PPT) recommended by the New York State Drinking Water Quality Council.
The Village of Cornwall-on-Hudson remains vigilant in the protection of its water supply and continues to monitor its drinking water system on a regular basis in conjunction with the DOH and Orange County Department of Health.
For questions regarding these tests or any other water matter, please contact DOH or the Cornwall-on-Hudson Water Department.
The village’s Annual Water Quality Report, which will be issued later this month, will include the test results.
PLEASE TAKE NOTICE that the Village Board of the Village of Cornwall-on-Hudson will hold a public hearing on May 20, 2019 at 7:00 P.M., or as soon thereafter as the matter may be heard at Village Hall, 325 Hudson Street, Cornwall-on-Hudson, New York 12520 on a local law to amend Village Code Chapter 155 to designate “No Parking” and “No Standing” areas on Mountain Road.

We have reviewed laws in a number of municipalities, including the Town of Warwick; the City of Black Diamond, WA; and the Town of Charlestown, RI; and have discussed the issue with many people, including village residents. This is a complex issue and we appreciate your patience. Linked here [pdf] is the revised draft lighting law. The board will hold a public hearing on the proposed law at 7 p.m., Monday, January 28, 2019, at Village Hall. [view entire resolution] We welcome your comments.
