Units: ug/L is micrograms per Liter  

*Microcystins were not detected above the reported method detection limit of 0.15 micrograms per liter. This result is being provided for informational purposes only.

** Microcystins were detected in the raw water above the reported method detection limit, but below the EPA method reporting limit of 0.3 µg/L. An approximated value is being provided for informational purposes only.

***Microcystins were detected in the finished water above the reported method detection limit, but below the EPA method reporting limit of 0.3 µg/L.   The value is inconsistent with the raw water result of non-detect.  An approximated value is being provided for informational purposes only.

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 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 click here
