The Town of Cortlandt has issued a response to an article run in the Patch about the quality of the water provided to the area through the Northern Westchester Joint Waterworks. It is their position that the online article was inaccurate. You can read the town's response here http://www.townofcortlandt.com/Cit-e-Access/news/index.cfm?NID=44225&TID=20&jump2=0
Editor's note: Such scare tactics are sometimes promoted
by companies to sell water filters.
