The recently released study of the Village of Aurora water system operated by Wells College since 1929 highlights a problem most municipalities in the county are facing.
Cayuga County Water and Sewer Authority project advisor Doug Selby said on Thursday’s Finger Lakes Morning News it’s a hidden problem.
Authority Director Jeannine Wilson added the Aurora study is the first of a look at ten water and sewer systems in the county in the year long study.
Newly re-elected Aurora Mayor Bonnie Bennett said there are some advantages to a system that’s almost a century old.
Bennett and village officials are concerned about the future after Wells College recently announced it wants to get out of the water business and become a water consumer.
