The following message was emailed to Red Mill employees and parents on Tuesday, April 12.
Dear Red Mill Staff and Parents,
The East Greenbush Central School District was informed by the Town of East Greenbush that municipal water supplied to the Hampton Manor neighborhood, which includes Red Mill Elementary School, has tested above the allowable level for trihalomethanes (THMs).
Trihalomethanes are a byproduct of the water treatment process. They are formed when chlorine reacts with the natural organic material found in water.
While the water at Red Mill is safe to use and drink, we wanted to make you aware of this town water advisory.
The town will be sending all impacted residents a letter with more information. If you have any questions, please contact the Town of East Greenbush Water and Sewer Department at 518-477-9367.
