The NY State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC) and the NY State Department of Health (NYSDOH) have announced preliminary results of their research into Perfluorinated Compounds in Fish in area waterbodies including Beaver Dam Lake, the main tributary of the lake as well as in the Moodna Creek. Laboratory analysis indicates elevated levels of the chemical PFOS in the fish sampled. As a result, NY State has issued a "catch and release" advisory for recreational fishing to ensure that residents do not consume PFC-contaminated fish. NYSDOH is providing warning signs which will be posted on Beaver Dam Lake District reserves, the Moodna Stream in Cornwall as well as other streams in neighboring areas.

As indicated in previous NYSDOH guidance, recreational swimming and boating are not affected by the levels of PFCs found in the lake water of Beaver Dam Lake.

The Town of Cornwall is currently undergoing a town-wide reassessment of all real property.

Tyler Technologies, the firm that has been hired to assist in performing this task, will be working in the field to conduct a final review of properties for the purpose of valuation. Tyler’s staff will complete this review primarily from the roadway, though in some instances the reviewer may be required to drive on private roads or long driveways when properties are not visible from the road. There will be no action required for property owners.

After the final review is completed, Assessment Disclosure Notices will be sent to all property owners so they may review their updated value.

Additionally, the Town will be holding a public meeting to further explain the notice prior to them being sent to property owners.

Residents visiting the Town of Cornwall’s parks, Riverlight Park and Laurel Crest Park, will see big changes this fall. Thanks to a significant grant made possible by Dr Pepper Snapple Group (NYSE: DPS) in collaboration with Keep America Beautiful, the Town’s beautiful and well-maintained parks will now promote a cleaner environment through our newly initiated public park recycling effort. The Recycling Bin Grant Program provides funding for 900 new recycling bins in public parks across the country in 2016, making recycling more accessible for Americans enjoying the outdoors.

The Dr Pepper Snapple Group/Keep America Beautiful Park Recycling Bins will be used at both parks to collect recyclable beverage containers, such as glass bottles, aluminum and metal cans, and plastic bottles and cups. “The bins will make recycling convenient and easier for residents and visitors using our parks,” said Town of Cornwall Supervisor Richard Randazzo. See attached link.
