Drought Cited in Endicott Water Discoloration

Low groundwater levels are causing discoloration and pressure problems for some customers served by the village of Endicott water system.

Mayor John Bertoni said a water conservation directive remains in effect for those served by the system. The directive was issued on July 27 because of the region’s worsening drought conditions.

Bertoni said lower-than-normal levels in the village water tanks can caused reduced pressure in some parts of the system.

The mayor noted any agitation in the system can stir up sediment in water lines, especially when supplies are low because of the lower-than-normal precipitation levels in recent months.

Although some people have complained to the village water department, Bertoni said the mayor’s office has received any calls about water quality issues.

The mayor said water customers who are encountering discoloration or pressure problems should contact the water department so the issues can be investigated.

The Endicott water system serves about 46,000 customers. The residential and business customers are in the village and in parts of the Town of Union, including Endwell and West Corners.
