HAVERSTRAW, N.Y. -- Two locations in Haverstraw that tested above federal limits for trihalomethane in the water have been brought into compliance with U.S. Environmental Protection Agency standards based on recent tests, according to lohud.com.

Suez Water New York said that in order to reduce the concentrations of the chemicals, and bring it into EPA-approved levels, the two sites underwent a corrective plan that included using more ground water and flushing hydrants, said lohud.com.

Suez said the two locations showed an average level of the chemical at the locations at 80.6 parts per billion and 84.3 parts per billion, just above the 80 parts per billion required by the EPA. Currently, the two locations are at 66.4 and 70.3, added Lohud.com.
