Last Tuesday, the Torrey Town Board unanimously approved the two water districts proposed at the public hearing Jan. 12. With the formation of the districts, the town will now apply to the New York State Comptroller for approval.
However, where the water for a small district in the Perry Point area will come from is stalled in communications between the Villages of Penn Yan and Dresden and the Town of Torrey.
Torrey District #1 will receive water from the Town of Geneva's well at Kashong, via a main that is being extended by the Town of Benton, and serves portions of Rte. 14, as well as Albany, Boston, Caton, Serenity, and Davy Roads. The district will involve approximately 16,300 linear feet of 6, 8, and 12-inch water mains to serve approximately 44 residential units and three out of four wineries. There are also approximately 20 vacant lots, bringing the Equivalent Dwelling Unit (EDU) count to approximately 58.0 units.
