Water Restrictions Have Been Lifted

Last Updated: August 11, 2021

After three successive water testing cycles, CVPH has met New York State Department of Health (NYDOH) regulatory levels for Legionella and our Main Campus water restrictions have been lifted, effective Tuesday, August 10.

Several measures have been taken to reduce the risk to our patients and our people including adjustments to our water treatment system and changes to its essential components. Point of use (POU) filters were installed throughout the facility and a variety use restrictions implemented.

The POU filters will continue to be used and removed as they expire. With the restrictions lifted, we have resumed all previous consumption, showers/bathing and hand hygiene functions.

We will continue to monitor for Legionella in our water system to be sure we maintain NYSDOH regulatory levels.
