Audrey Matott reports in The Greenville Pioneer that Greenville Town Councilperson Richard Baer reported at a recent town meeting that several residents along Route 81 have had their private wells tested, and found sodium in their water. The story says, "There is currently no maximum allowable contaminant level for sodium in New York State." Greenville just started s 2,250-foot sewer extension along Route 81 and County Route 26A, and at the town meeting, Matott reports, speculation about the source of the sodium included the road salt stored at the town highway garage on Route 26, or that the state DOT caused it "maintaining Route 81 in the winter." While no solution or proposal was suggested in the story about the sodium problem, Tow Supervisor Paul Macko outlined plans to expand the sewer project to include water lines and add many costs. a permissive referendum and a public hearing would be required for Macko's spending plan to happen.
