The Village of Scotia found elevated levels of lead in drinking water in some homes/buildings in our community. Lead can cause serious health problems, especially for pregnant women and children 6 years and younger. Please read the following Public Education Notice closely to see what you can do to reduce lead in your drinking water and to learn what the Village of Scotia is doing to address this problem.
The Village would like to thank residents for the overwhelming response in taking part in our lead and copper sampling plan. At this time, we are no longer looking for homes to add to our sample site list. Please use the New York State Department of Health link below to receive your free drinking water lead test kit.
New York State Department of Health is offering free lead testing through the following link : NYS Free Lead Testing
