MAYVILLE — The “Do Not Drink” water advisory for the village of Mayville’s public water supply has been lifted. Water is now acceptable for drinking, food preparation and all household uses.
Coordination between the village of Mayville, Chautauqua County and the New York State Departments of Environmental Conservation and Health has ensured that a new water source for the village, Well No. 4, is now online and providing clean water to Village residents. Water testing has confirmed Well #4 has no detectable levels of PFNA.
The village residents and water customers are commended for their cooperation during this emergency.
Sampling results show levels of P–FNA continue to go down in the Village water storage tank. Efforts are underway by the Village to flush the tank of old water and replace it with clean water from Well No. 4. Additional engineering measures are being taken to maximize use of Well #4 to meet the needs of the Village and continue to lower levels in the storage tank.
The water system will continue to be monitored on a weekly basis and results will be made available to the public.
Sampling data from Monday, Dec. 21, show PFNA levels ranged between non-detectable to 59.5 parts per trillion. Levels in the water system are continuing to go down by maximizing water delivery from Well No. 4.
The water supply was sampled again on Wednesday. Repeat sampling will occur on Monday and then a weekly schedule will ensue. Results will be made available to the public.
