Otsego County’s Water ‘Excellent,’
SUNY Report For OCCA Concludes
COOPERSTOWN – The OCCA released an analysis of 84 wells in the county at today’s Otsego Lake Festival, and the organization’s president, Vicky Lentz, was able to declare, “We have excellent water.”
The findings, contained in a 35-page report, “Drinking Water Chemical Analyses for OCCA’s What’s In Our Water Campaign,” will be added to a database at the Catskill Headwaters Research Center at SUNY Oneonta.
The 84 wells comprise “a huge chunk” of the institute’s database, Lentz said. The data document water quality, so there is some recourse, possibly legal recourse, if something it becomes degraded.
The report was prepared by Dr. Les Harbargen, Morris, director of the SUNY Oneonta institute.
