Groundbreaking for Ontario, Seneca water expansion set for Thursday

Supervisors Norman Teed, Mark Venuti, Gary Westfall and Greg Wadhams and their respective boards invite all area residents and local leaders to attend the groundbreaking for an important economic development initiative impacting the four towns they represent.

The project is an inter-municipal water expansion that highlights the success of shared services between the four towns of Phelps, Geneva, Waterloo and Junius, as well as the Village of Waterloo, that will supply the water.

The expansion will provide public water to the area surrounding NYS Thruway Exit 42, including Routes 14, 96, and 318, corridors targeted for their potential for growth.

The groundbreaking ceremony is an opportunity for residents to learn more about the economic initiative and how it will impact their communities.

Representatives from MRB Group, the engineering firm assisting with the collaborative project, will present a project map and discuss the project design objective, which focused on utilizing the skills of the public works employees in each town. This significantly reduced the project costs, compared with typical public works initiatives.

This groundbreaking is the first step in a project that will provide clean water to residents and businesses, as well as infrastructure to support future economic growth.
