PCB's IN UTICA RESERVOIR?

Well, we finally have information from a medical doctor who reflects in a statement that undoubtedly the toxic waste dump site "affluents" did factually run downhill and enter the City of Utica water distribution system.
This reservoir as can be seen when driving south on Valley View Road (adjacent to the golf course) is a focal point that the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation refuses to acknowledge.
This NYS Agency had a responsibility to uphold the laws and protect it's citizens, however, failed miserably.
Adding insult to injury is the fact that Judy Drabicki, Regional Director formerly worked for the Rayhill law firm in New Hartford. Guess what? Rayhill trail, Rayhill family members on the town of new hartford Planning and Zoning Board? Seems like the town and others want to keep these matters well hidden from the publics eyes.
It was also learned that a cancer group was to have been formed in Utica to specifically keep track of cluster effects of cancer problems. Where is the data on this, especially, where it involves our toxic waste dump sites in New Hartford.
Has anyone gone on Taber Road in New Hartford. Well Alsace Cragnolin worked with Homer Scully and spread this "oil" throughout New Hartford including Taber Road.
I wonder who Homer Scully was married to? I will bet this will raise some eyebrows as to who is connected or should I say, who was connected to whom? Interesting what a wedding announcement or an obituary can tell the public.

They probably thought it was good flavoring.

No drinking water comes from Valley View Road.
Our drinking water comes from Hinkley Lake which as motor boats, swimmers and is surrounded by camps and homes that use septic tanks.
That being said, all our water goes through a filtration plant before it reaches your home.

You are correct as far as where the water comes from today. I believe the originator of this thread was referring to the 1960s and 1970s before the reservoirs were shut down. Drinking water did indeed come from those reservoirs back then.

nhtaxpayer is correct. In the 60's and 70"s and even 80's PCS's were flowing into the Utica reservoir and this water was being distributed into the Utica and Southern New Hartford residential drinking water.
If anyone has ever seen the Erin Brokovich story, you will learn it takes, often decades for these matters to show up in cancer and cancer related matters.
Ask yourself, "how many of my family has been subjected to cancer related chemicals?"
There is much blame here to go around...

I've been swimming in the utica reservoir for the last 10 yrs. I hope I'll be okay.
