Trends from a nearly year-long study at all seven Westchester County Wastewater Treatment Plants continue to show collectively continue to decrease significantly week after week.

As of mid-May, the trends from a nearly year-long COVID-19 study at all seven Westchester County Wastewater Treatment Plants continue to show collectively continue to decrease significantly week after week.  These levels are as low as they were in mid-September of last year.

Since early in the pandemic, the Westchester County Department of Environmental Facilities (DEF) has partnered with the City University of New York (CUNY) to study the wastewater at County treatment plants to better understand the impact of COVID-19 on large urban areas.

Latimer said: “These trends, as a part of this forward thinking study, continue to show a positive outlook on our war against COVID. I commend the work of our Environmental Facilities Department and the scientists they partnered with to help monitor the health of Westchester residents during this unprecedented time.”
