Our Municipal Water Supply
The news from Flint, MI recently has concerned many of us about the quality of our drinking water. Rest assured that the water produced by the Village of Sodus continues to be of the highest quality. We regularly test for a wide array of potential contaminants. The 2016 Water Quality Report is now available at https://sodusvillage.org/about-the-village/water/.
Speaking of water, the Village is very pleased to announce that our very own Phil Badman has been selected as the 2016 New York Rural Water Association Water Operation Specialist of the Year! Congratulations, Phil!
