Cassadaga Well Up And Running

CASSADAGA – It was announced at the Cassadaga Village Board meeting that the village now has fresh new well water.

Greg McCorkhill, Stearns and Wheeler engineer, told the board the well has been up and running.

“We are drinking new well water,” he said. “It all went smoothly.”

McCorkhill added he has been talking to the supplier about adjusting the pump speeds and finishing the gas pipe for the generators.

McCorkhill brought a substantial completion form to the board and asked for approval.

Trustees Mike Lehnen and Josh Slaven both opposed the motion.

“I have a different definition of substantial completion. I think more work should be done before this gets approved,” Slaven said. “I am a contractor too so, I get it.”

“I have been in this business for over 30 years myself,” Lehnen said.

Both wanted to see more work done before the board pays.

The motion was approved 3 to 2 to pay the substantial completion form.

Mayor LeeAnn Lazarony said she would like to have a ribbon cutting at the well when the weather improves.
