Dykeer Operations District
New York State recently established new drinking water standards for emerging compounds, specifically 1,4-Dioxane, PFOA and PFOS. In preparation for the new standards, New York American Water proactively sampled all of our source water wells. Testing of the Dykeer Operations District, which serves The Willow community, produced sample results for PFOA and PFOS above the State's new standards.
New York American Water is pursuing granular activated carbon filtration treatment for this system. While new treatment will take time to fully install, New York American Water’s proactive approach has significantly reduced the time needed to install the right treatment system for our customers.
