IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR DRINKING WATER Greenwich Village – NY5700122 Does Not Meet Surface Water Treatment Requirements Our water system recently violated a drinking water standard. Although this situation does not require that you take immediate action, as our customers, you have a right to know what happened, what you should do, and what we are doing to correct this situation.

th

In January 2008, the New York State Department of Health (NYS DOH) determined that one of the wells that is a source of our drinking water was under the direct influence of surface water and that we did not provide adequate treatment to assure that potentially harmful organisms were removed or inactivated. The Department of Health required that we comply with the requirement to provide adequate treatment, replace the sources or purchase water from a nearby water supply by July 15, 2009. Unfortunately, we were unable to comply with the deadline and we are now in violation of the New York State Sanitary Code, Section 5-1.30(b). Section 5-1.78 of the State Sanitary Code requires the water system owner/operator to notify all customers of this violation and future actions. What does this mean?

26

27

This is not a situation requiring that you take immediate action. If it had been you would have been notified immediately. However, until improvements are made, there is an increased chance that disease-causing organisms could contaminate the water supply. No changes have been detected in the quality of our water, but, detailed analyses of the water have shown the potential for contamination by surface organisms. Therefore, we have decided to choose the option of providing adequate water treatment for all our water sources. Inadequately treated water may contain disease-causing organisms. These organisms include bacteria, viruses, and parasites which can cause symptoms such as nausea, cramps, diarrhea, and associated headaches. These symptoms, however, are not only caused by organisms in drinking water. If you experience any of these symptoms and they persist, you may want to seek medical advice. What is being done?

EXIT 1 RV

We are currently working with the Department of Health to modify our water system to comply with the State drinking water requirements. We have contracted with an engineering firm to develop plans for a new water treatment system. Preliminary plans have been completed and submitted to state agencies for approval of funding for the project. During the next month, we will set a schedule for compliance with the regulations; the final date for completion of this project will depend on the availability of funding. Until compliance is achieved, you will receive a notice similar to this every three months. We have been collecting additional water samples and having them analyzed for organisms that might indicate the presence of surface contamination. These samples were collected every two weeks from October 2008 through September 2009 and have all tested negative for indicator organisms. What should I do? • If you have specific health concerns, consult your doctor. People with severely compromised immune systems, infants, and some elderly may be at increased risk. These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. • You do not need to boil your water or provide any additional treatment. For more information, please contact Leo Flynn at 518-692-7743, or Mike Hallock at the NYS DOH, 518-793-3893.
