Compiled by the Allegany County Department of Health


The lists below are laboratories that provide information, sampling instructions and containers, and analyses for private or public water supplies in our area.  All analyses needed to comply with any regulation (Subpart 67-4 Lead Testing in School Drinking Water) must be performed by a laboratory certified by the New York State Department of Health Wadsworth Center under the Environmental Laboratory Approval Program (ELAP). 

When you are concerned about the microbiological quality of your water, the levels of minerals or metals (inorganic), or the possibility of solvent (organic) contamination of you water, you are encouraged to contact the Environmental Health Division of the Allegany County Department of Health for consultation.  If you choose to utilize the services of any of these labs, you should call them as soon as you decide to conduct sampling.  In all cases, it will be necessary to obtain instructions and appropriate sampling containers from the lab and this may entail a few days wait before sampling may begin.  In no case should you sample before contacting the laboratory!

For Zika Virus Testing Call 585-268-9250





Zika Virus Fact Sheet






Allegany County residents may be wondering about the Zika virus you have heard about in the news. The New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) has launched a Zika virus information line, 1-888-364-4723, which is staffed weekdays from 9am to 6pm for New Yorkers to call and learn more about the virus. If you have traveled to Zika virus affected countries and have symptoms you should contact your health care provider. The most common symptoms of Zika virus are fever, rash, joint pain, or conjunctivitis (red eyes).  See your doctor if you are pregnant and you or your partner has traveled to a country where Zika virus cases have been reported. Be sure to tell your health care provider where you traveled. Visit this website for up to date information about affected counties, Areas with Zika | Zika virus | CDC .

Those who travel to one of these areas should talk to their doctor first and strictly follow steps to avoid mosquito bites during the trip, including:

  • Dressing in long-sleeved shirts and long pants
  • Staying indoors when mosquitoes are most active
  • Using repellant products registered with the US Environmental Protection Agency 
  • Not overusing repellant – only applying as much as needed to provide protection
  • Reading and following label directions before you use any kind of repellant

Spring is around the corner. Allegany County residents should remember to use these tips to protect themselves from mosquito bites.  In addition, Allegany County residents are urged to prevent standing water to decrease our mosquito population in the following ways:

  • Dispose of used tires, tin cans, plastic containers, ceramic pots or similar containers in which water collects.
  • Drill holes in the bottoms of recycling containers that are kept outdoors. Make sure roof gutters drain properly and clean clogged gutters in the spring and fall.
  • Turn over plastic wading pools and wheelbarrows when not in use and change the water in bird baths twice a week.
  • Clean vegetation and debris from the edges of ponds.
  • Clean and chlorinate swimming pools, outdoor saunas and hot tubs, and drain water from pool covers.
