Water Quality Testing

Ground water can contain a wide variety of both naturally-occurring and man-made minerals and chemicals.  Some of these can impart tastes and odors, cause staining of fixtures, or even leave sediments while others are undetectable without testing. Read more

Onsite Water Supplies

Most residents who live in rural areas get their water from onsite sources.  Drilled wells are the most common type of onsite water supply in Cattaraugus County, although driven-point wells and springs can still be found serving older homes.  These water supplies come in all shapes and sizes and are collectively referred to as “private water supplies”.  Read more

Everyday, you are exposed to many types of environmental contaminants and possibly disease carrying agents.  Some of these cause a great deal of anxiety for residents like cockroaches, but others like lead paint may go entirely unnoticed until a problem develops.  Being aware of these potential hazards and reducing the likelihood of exposure is important to safeguard your health.

The Environmental Health Division conducts several programs intended to reduce the risk of exposure to environmental hazards and control communicable disease carriers in Cattaraugus County. Read more
