You may have seen this News 12 story about water on Long Island and emerging contaminants such as 1,4-dioxane. Please note, the Plainview Water District has been treating for these contaminants since 2020 and all water wells currently in use have treatment in place to remove the specific contaminants mentioned in this story to non-detectable levels. https://longisland.news12.com/residents-learn-about-possible-cancer-causing-pollutant-in-li-drinking-water
Since 2017, PWD has been developing and installing treatment systems throughout the District to help rid the water supply of 1,4-dioxane as well as other emerging contaminants such as PFOS and PFOA.
The District never stops working for its residents in an effort to provide the highest quality drinking water. If you have any questions please feel free to give us a call at (516) 931-6469 or visit our website.
