The Village of Wellsville operates a Water Treatment Plant and
distribution system. The primary drinking water source is the Genesee
River that flows up out of Pennsylvania and the rural areas of New York
to the south. This water source is extremely good and plentiful. The
Village Water Treatment Plant started treating water for the Village on
June 28, 1990. The plant is rated for 2.5 million gallons per day. The
average daily consumption is currently at 900,000 gallons. The
Treatment Plant has an excellent series of web pages of its own that can
be accessed at http://www.wellsvillewater.com.
WATER RATE CHART
During 2004 the Village undertook an assessment of the entire watershed
through a project with the NYS
Rural Water Association. This
project has been funded through a grant to Rural Water from the USEPA.
Potential Pollutant Sources in Pennsylvania and New York have been
cataloged and analyzed, and are used to look at future projects to
improve the quality of water being provided to the residents and
businesses of the Village.
The Village of Wellsville Sewer System is
designed to handle the effluent from the residents and businesses within
the Village. Some additional lines serve facilities and homes within
the Town of Wellsville. The lines, pump stations, and treatment plant
are operated by Village Public Works staff. The system also treats
leachate from nearby landfills and accepts septic system pumping trucks
at the Treatment Plant. Recreational vehicles may also eliminate their
waste at the plant. Contact the office at 585-596-1725 for information
on what is and what isn't accepted at the Treatment Plant and what
conditions you may have to meet.
