10 pm UPDATE: Weather Service On Scene
About half of the 4,000-plus Potter County households that were
without power 24 hours after Thursday afternoon's severe storm now
have electricity. Portions of Coudersport, Roulette, Galeton and
Genesee were brought back on line Friday evening. West Penn Power is
still working in the Coudersport and Roulette areas. On Saturday, they
will focus on re-establishing localized/neighborhood service.
Meanwhile, Penelec is continuing to restore service in areas of
Galeton that are still out and Tri-County REC continues working to
restore its larger grid areas. Many — but not all — of the 2,000
households lacking electrical service as of late Friday should be back
on line by Saturday night. Anyone who would like to report a power
outage or obtain more information in the West Penn Power or Penelec
service areas should call 1-888-544-4877.
National Weather Service representatives joined the Potter County
Emergency Management Agency in touring the affected areas this
afternoon to gather data on the nature of the storm. Official findings
are pending, but initial reports suggest wind speeds of upwards of 90
miles per hour and a mixture of straight-line winds, microbursts and
classification EF-1 tornado activity. Official designations will be
announced at a later date.
Potter County officials are asking residents in the affected areas to
check on their neighbors and see if they can render assistance to
those with special needs, as refrigeration, water-pumping and
communications services remain unavailable. Coudersport Volunteer Fire
Department reminds those in need that its modular units along Rt. 6
west in Coudersport are open as comfort stations.
Officials released the identity of the woman who died as a result of
injuries sustained when a tree fell on her at a private campsite on
Wintergreen Road in the Hickox/Genesee area. Linda Lou Button, 66, of
Andover, N.Y., was pronounced dead at the scene of severe head trauma.

EPA Declares Dimock Water Safe To Drink
EPA Completes Drinking Water Sampling in Dimock, Pa.
PHILADELPHIA (July 25, 2012) – The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency announced today that it has completed its sampling of private drinking water wells in Dimock, Pa. Data previously supplied to the agency by residents, the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection and Cabot Oil and Gas Exploration had indicated the potential for elevated levels of water contaminants in wells, and following requests by residents EPA took steps to sample water in the area to ensure there were not elevated levels of contaminants. Based on the outcome of that sampling, EPA has determined that there are not levels of contaminants present that would require additional action by the Agency.
“Our goal was to provide the Dimock community with complete and reliable information about the presence of contaminants in their drinking water and to determine whether further action was warranted to protect public health,” said EPA Regional Administrator Shawn M. Garvin. “The sampling and an evaluation of the particular circumstances at each home did not indicate levels of contaminants that would give EPA reason to take further action. Throughout EPA's work in Dimock, the Agency has used the best available scientific data to provide clarity to Dimock residents and address their concerns about the safety of their drinking water.”
EPA visited Dimock, Pa. in late 2011, surveyed residents regarding their private wells and reviewed hundreds of pages of drinking water data supplied to the agency by Dimock residents, the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection and Cabot. Because data for some homes showed elevated contaminant levels and several residents expressed concern about their drinking water, EPA determined that well sampling was necessary to gather additional data and evaluate whether residents had access to safe drinking water.
Between January and June 2012, EPA sampled private drinking water wells serving 64 homes, including two rounds of sampling at four wells where EPA was delivering temporary water supplies as a precautionary step in response to prior data indicating the well water contained levels of contaminants that pose a health concern. At one of those wells EPA did find an elevated level of manganese in untreated well water. The two residences serviced by the well each have water treatment systems that can reduce manganese to levels that do not present a health concern.
As a result of the two rounds of sampling at these four wells, EPA has determined that it is no longer necessary to provide residents with alternative water. EPA is working with residents on the schedule to disconnect the alternate water sources provided by EPA.
Overall during the sampling in Dimock, EPA found hazardous substances, specifically arsenic, barium or manganese, all of which are also naturally occurring substances, in well water at five homes at levels that could present a health concern. In all cases the residents have now or will have their own treatment systems that can reduce concentrations of those hazardous substances to acceptable levels at the tap. EPA has provided the residents with all of their sampling results and has no further plans to conduct additional drinking water sampling in Dimock.
