Watertown to Fort Drum Water Line
The Authority’s second big project was to ensure an adequate supply of drinking water to Fort Drum. In 1991 the 11-mile Watertown-to-Fort Drum Water Line was completed. In addition to the pipeline, the system includes two pumping stations with the capacity to deliver up to three million gallons of water per day from the City of Watertown’s water treatment plant to Fort Drum. Taking advantage of the infrastructure passing by their doorstep, the towns of Champion, LeRay and Pamelia formed eight town water districts that serve residents and provide the capacity for the townships to grow.
