An often-asked question about our water system is how hard is our water. In chemical terms our waters average hardness is 210 mg/L or 12 gr/Gallon as CaCO3, total dissolved solids is 150 mg/L, and Iron content is less than .050 mg/L This means our water is very hard. If you have other questions about our water system please contact Chris Lawrick. At 739–5691 or clawrick@horseheads.org

UPDATE: 01/14/2020

In September 2019 the Village applied for a grant from the NYS Environmental Facilities Corporation to make improvements to the Village water system to insure water quantity and quality for the entire water system. We are glad to report that we have been notified that that we were awarded a grant in an amount not to exceed $3 Million. The most important projects identified were:

	1. Upgrade/Replacement of 2” Undersized Watermain in the Ridge Road Area
	2. Replacement of Inoperable Watermain Gate Valves throughout the System 
	3. Looping of Various Dead-End Watermains 
	4. Replacement of Lead Gooseneck Residential Water Laterals 
	5. Replacement of Inoperable Fire Hydrants throughout the System 
	6. Upgrade/Replacement of 4” Undersized Watermain in the “Number Street” Area
	7. Upgrade/Replacement of 4” Undersized Watermain on Center Street from Sayre Street to John Street

In the coming months the Village, in cooperation with Fagan Engineering, will be prioritizing the projects identified in our recent water system improvement study, identifying critical needs of the system, and moving forward with planning for the reconstruction projects. Full project completion will likely take at least two years.

The Village intends to apply for a NYS Water Grant Through the NYS Environmental Facilities Corporation. Fagan Engineers has been authorized to proceed with a grant application and submission to see if they will award the requested grant, and if they do that would potentially fund part of the project. The maximum amount the Village could receive from the grant would be $3.7 Million. The other financing portion would be a bond not to exceed $5,000,000. This doesn’t mean the Village has to bond that much, it would depending on what we receive in grants. The resolution adopted on September 5th authorizes Village staff and Fagan Engineers to move forward.

WATER SYSTEM IMPROVEMENTS PROJECT 2020

Posted 9/11/19

The Village of Horseheads has owned and operated a water system for over 100 years providing potable water to individuals, businesses and industries located in the Village of Horseheads and Town of Horseheads. In October 2018 the Village issued a Request For Proposals (RFP) to complete a study and preliminary engineering report for the water system, including evaluation of existing water infrastructure, asset management and identification of critical needs of the system, both in terms of potable use and fire protection. On December 13, 2018 the Village accepted a proposal from Fagan Engineers and Land Surveyors, PC for water system evaluation and improvements.

On June 27, 2019 Fagan presented its written report regarding the Village water system analysis and mapping identifying 9 potential projects to insure water quantity and quality for the entire water system, including but not limited to an analysis of pipe material, pipe diameter, static pressure, fire flow rates, hydrant conditions, potential improvements with rank, and potential funding sources for recommended improvements, etc.

In August 2019 the Village Board directed the Village Manager to to investigate the availability of grants for the funding of construction of such projects, and funding, via bonding and otherwise, of project costs not covered by grants, etc.

The Project - now referred to as HORSEHEADS WATER SYSTEM IMPROVEMENTS 2020 - consists of the following upgrades, repairs and replacements of existing water system infrastructure:

1. Upgrade/Replacement of 2” Undersized Watermain in the Ridge Road Area, 2. Replacement of Inoperable Watermain Gate Valves throughout the System, 3. Looping of Various Dead-End Watermains, 4. Replacement of Lead Gooseneck Residential Water Laterals, 5. Replacement of Inoperable Fire Hydrants throughout the System, 6. Upgrade/Replacement of 4” Undersized Watermain in the “Number Street” Area, and 7. Upgrade/Replacement of 4” Undersized Watermain on Center Street from Sayre Street to John Street, and

The Village intends to apply for a NYS Water Grant Through the NYS Environmental Facilities Corporation. Fagan Engineers has been authorized to proceed with a grant application and submission to see if they will award the requested grant, and if they do that would potentially fund part of the project. The maximum amount the Village could receive from the grant would be $3.7 Million. The other financing portion would be a bond not to exceed $5,000,000. This doesn’t mean the Village has to bond that much, it would depending on what we receive in grants. The resolution adopted on September 5th authorizes Village staff and Fagan Engineers to move forward.
