Coxsackie readies mobile home park water hookup

Jan 22, 2011 1:48 pm
A longstanding tussle to expand Coxsackie village water to a trailer park on its edge along the Route 9W corridor seems to be in its final stages, according to a Daily Mail report, which says that the final preparations are being put in place to enable Diederich’s mobile home development to connect to the village water supply.
Engineering reports have already been completed that will facilitate the development’s ability to hook-up its residents to village water. The move is being undertaken because the well water that currently services Diederich’s was found to be contaminated.
Holding up the hookup has been the fact that the village is completing work on a new water treatment plant, which got underway a couple of months ago and is expected to be completed in the spring. Until that is done the village is somewhat constrained in how much water it can supply for new hook-ups, even though the Diederich’s issue was considered a public health matter so clearance was given by the state. “Because of the limited capacity we have with the current plant, we don’t have the ability to hook-up a large number of new water users,” Mayor Mark Evans said. “But two of Diederich’s wells went bad and they were forced to choose between installing an expensive chlorination system or hooking into the village system. They opted to do the latter.”.

All engineering plans for the project were completed last month. The cost of paying for the hook-up is being borne by the mobile home park and will not cost the village anything.
