Water Project

Phase one of the water project is complete.  Many areas of the village have received new water mains and water meters.  The contractors will return in the Spring of 2020 to complete seeding and mulching of areas affected by the construction.

A grant application was submitted to the Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity (DCEO) for Phase Two of the project.  At this time, DCEO is still reviewing those applications to determine eligibility and funding.  We are hopeful that the Village will receive the additional funds needed to complete the project to replace all water mains throughout the Village. 

Some changes have taken place at the water plant to improve the quality of the water as it leaves the plant.  We continue our efforts to bring you clean drinking water; however,  there may be occasional instances when the quality of the water is not ideal; mainly due to the areas of the Village that still have old water mains.  

We appreciate everyone’s patience during this time of construction.
