Agreement Reached To Provide Water To Whitestown Residents
A joint agreement has been reached on a project to provide homeowners on Route 233 and the western end of Sutliff Road in Whitestown with municipal water.
Senator Joe Griffo and Assemblyman Anthony Brindisi brought together officials from Rome, Westmoreland and Whitestown to work out an agreement to allow residents along Route 233 to tap into a water line that is the property of of the Town of Westmoreland.
The water line was installed in 2007 to supply Rome City water to Camelot Village, a manufactured housing community on Route 233.
Prior to this agreement, Whitestown residents were not permitted to tap into the water line, even though it was only 50 feet from many of their front doors.
Whitestown residents along Route 233 have been using well water.
The project is expected to begin soon.
