Attention Village Residents,

The Village of South Corning is currently in the early phases of planning and design for a large water system improvement project. This topographic survey is part of that design work.

The proposed project consists of the following primary components:

Replacement of the existing storage tank with a new 650,000-gallon tank at a slightly higher elevation. This component will include site improvements, fencing, site access, and a new transmission line to the tank.

Upgrades to the water supply including automating the connection with the City of Corning and/or developing a new water supply well.

Installation of a filtration system to remove iron and manganese from the Village well prior to distribution. The filtration system will include a filter house, pressure filter cartridges, automated valves and controls, and means to discharge backwash to the sanitary sewer system.

Replacement of approximately 23,000 feet of old watermain throughout the Village. The project will also include replacing approximately 12 hydrants, 5 gate valves, 356 service stubs. 

The proposed project will address the most pressing needs of the public water system and thus will provide the reliable and resilient infrastructure required to support the community for years to come.

Construction is not anticipated to begin until the 2020 construction season. If there are any questions, please contact Mayor James A. Thomas at (607) 936-3642.


Seasonal Parking Reminder

There is a Local Law prohibiting parking on Village Streets from November 1st thru March 1st. This is to insure that the Village Highway Department can keep streets clear of snow and ice.

Although the Village is not responsible for any damage that might occur to any vehicle that is in violation of the ordinance, we make every effort to avoid damage to all property.

Enforcement of this law is as follows:

First Violation – Notice of Violation left on vehicle

Third Violation – Vehicle may be towed at owner’s expense

We are sure you will help in this matter.
