The Canandaigua Town Board has announced a public hearing set for May 20th at 6 p.m. to discuss the 2024 Water System Improvement Project. The hearing will take place at the Town Hall on Routes 5&20 West, where residents can learn about the proposed changes and express their views.

The project, estimated to cost up to $8.52 million, aims to enhance the town’s water infrastructure. This includes replacing the existing 12-inch water main on Middle Cheshire Road with a new PVC counterpart, updating the 8-inch main along Wells Curtice Road, and installing new equipment at the Cramer Road tank site to improve water quality. These updates are designed by the MRB Group of Rochester and are essential for maintaining the system’s reliability and safety.

Officials indicated that the cost for a typical single-family home within the water district would range between $77.65 and $232.83 annually, depending on potential grant funding. The project costs are reported to stay below the average cost threshold set by the State Comptroller’s Office. Residents can review the Preliminary Engineering Report at the Town Clerk’s office to understand how these figures were calculated.
