AND NOW A WORD FROM MAYOR SCHMIDT: FREE LEAD TESTING KITS AVAILABLE

FREE WATER TESTING--Did you know that NY State is offering free testing for lead in your drinking water? The village water supply is excellent, but lead can seep into water from pipes and solder in older homes and apartments. Health effects of lead are greater on children and pregnant women, so be sure to get your free test kit since supplies are limited. All Croton residents are eligible.

It takes about 3 weeks to get your kit and you can order online by clicking the link below or by calling the Health Department at (518) 402-7650. A representative from the Bureau of Water Supply Protection will be happy to assist you and answer your questions.  Here's the link https://www.health.ny.gov/environmental/water/drinking/lead/free_lead_testing_pilot_program
