April 23, 2019 – Water Project Update

Dear Water Customer,
The Village of South Corning is currently in the early phases of planning and design for a large water system improvement project.
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 (for improved flow and pressure). 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 for more efficient use and/or developing a new water supply well.
Installation of a green sand 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.
The Village was able to maximize the available grant money to make the project as affordable to the end users as possible. Expected increases in the water rates as a result of these improvements is in the range of $10-15/month/EDU (Equivalent Dwelling Unit)

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

James A. Thomas Sr., Mayor
