WJFW TV is reporting  test results show water from Crescent Spring on South River Rd. in the Town of Crescent has elevated levels of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances, or PFAS.

Some studies have shown people exposed to PFAS may be at risk of increased cholesterol levels, worsening response to vaccines, a higher risk of thyroid disease, lower fertility in women, and an elevated risk of high blood pressure in pregnant women.

The Town of Crescent and the Oneida County Health Department recommend NOT drinking the spring water at this point.
