Guilford struggles with water source issues

GUILFORD – Least year’s hurricane brought issues with the hamlet of Guilford’s main water source to the forefront of officials’ minds. The hurricane washed away about 10 feet of the embankment directly bellow County Rd. 35, between the lake’s spillway and the hamlet’s water treatment plant. About 30 feet, or three sections, of the piping was exposed. The exposure necessitated an emergency fix and large rocks were placed both underneath the three sections of piping for support, as well as on top of the piping to provide a measure of protection.

“The piping is old and has been an issue for at least 15 years,” said Guilford’s Town Supervisor George Seneck. A few years ago the town tried to use pigging, a form of pipe maintenance and cleaning, to fix the piping, but was informed that the pipeline was not straight enough to preform the procedure.
