The Cayuga County Health Department has a sampling schedule in place, should there be a need to increase monitoring, results will be posted once they are received. The laboratory utilized in 2018 for Town of Owasco and City of Auburn was Upstate Freshwater Institute. The laboratory utilized in 2018 for Wells College was NYSDOH Wadsworth Laboratories. The Cayuga County Health Department in consultation with the New York State Department of Health will issue necessary advisories for drinking water when levels exceed normal limits. 

Our advisories will take into account the current research made available by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). To view the current EPA research visit the EPA website.
