Chatham Village Board discusses water maintenance projects

Water was the main issue discussed at the Chatham Village Board meeting. There was a short explanation of the plans to paint some of the tanks. Some preparation is necessary to ensure steady water pressure in the system as different tanks and pumps are brought online.

The more serious issue dealt with damaged pipes. These pipes are crush and slowly filling with sand and other debris. While this is an issue in its own right, the scope and type of damage indicates that poor workmanship, rather than normal wear-and-tear, is likely the principle cause of the damage. However, the documentation relating to this project was not immediately available, although the board is trying to locate it. Public comment also shed light on potential issues with other water projects in years past, suggesting there may be other issues at play.

In other village business, the Fiscal Year ’18 budget is almost ready. Labor negotiations are still ongoing, so the budget will have to wait for those to concluded before it can be finalized.
