SCHEDULE / CONSTRUCTION
Q. When will construction start?
Construction has begun! Please visit https://www.wwdistrict.com/updates for the most current construction updates.
Q. How long will construction take?
Construction is expected to take up to two (2) years.
Q. When will construction be completed?
Construction is expected to be completed in late Summer/Fall of 2022.
Q. How many Contractors will there be?
We are planning to issue 11 contracts for construction. Contracts will be divided by type of work. Contracts will include watermain installation along Route 209 and local side roads, a water storage tank, a water treatment plant and well field and water service installations.
Q. When will my water service be installed? When can I start using the new service?
A water service will be installed from the street into your home or building after the watermain has been installed and approved by the Health Department. All services will be installed in 2022. Once the service is installed and accepted by the Water Department, you may use the water.
Q. What is an easement?
An easement is a written document that provides permission for the Town to install the water main in the street.
Q. Why do we need a Water Line Easement from you?
Due to road widths and road setbacks the Town needs permission from you to install a buried/underground water pipe along the edge of or under the road pavement.
Q. What are my responsibilities as the property owner in terms of this easement?
The easement allows us (The Town) to bury the pipe in the roadway area. We (The Town) are responsible for the maintenance of the waterline not you. We (The Town) will file the authorized easement with Ulster County on your behalf to remain with your land deeds. The property owner and the Town will sign an easement.
Q. What happens once the easements are signed and filed with the County?
Once the easements are filed, the Town will bid and award a contract to install the waterline. The waterline installation is intended to have minimal disruption to you.
Q. What do we need to do to complete the easement?
You should receive a package, delivered by the USPS, from the Town. The package includes the easement description. The easement needs to be signed by the property owner(s). The easement also requires notarization. To best assist and keep the project moving forward, we need you to return the paperwork within two weeks of receiving the letter and/or schedule an appointment to come to Town Hall (108 Canal Street, Ellenville) and notarize your signature(s). You can also come to a signing event happening on Wednesday evenings and Saturday mornings.
Q. How can I set up an appointment to get my forms notarized?
Please contact the Town Supervisor Confidential Legislative Aide, Tracy Moza (845)647-7800 ext. 6. Tracy will set an appointment time with you.
Q. What if I can not complete the paperwork in the next two weeks?
We ask that you call and make an appointment or try to come to a signing event on Wednesday evening or Saturday morning.
Q. How much will this cost me?
There is no cost to properties located in the District. The NYC DEP has agreed to fund this project.
