Western Jefferson County Regional Water Line
In 1995 the Authority developed a 22-mile, $5 million pipeline project to provide drinking water to six town water districts and four villages between Cape Vincent and the Village of Glen Park. Water is purchased from the Village of Cape Vincent and sold to the towns of Cape Vincent, Lyme and Brownville, and the Village of Chaumont. Water is also available to the villages of Dexter and Brownville on an as-needed basis. The regional pipeline serves these municipal residents in a cost effective manner and provides the means for the municipalities to pursue growth opportunities.
The regional water line is owned by the Development Authority and serves the communities through a contractual agreement. Development Authority staff meet quarterly with the Regional Water Line partners to discuss operations and finances.
