The Ballston Town Board unanimously voted Tuesday to take town water from the Saratoga County Water Authority after a brief interruption. The town originally discontinued getting their water from this source due to a high reading of organics found last September caused by bad weather conditions.
“Bad weather like we just had makes the organics in the water supply worse and helps exacerbate the problem,” said
Supervisor Patti Southworth. “As the weather gets colder, there will be less organics in the water.”
Ballston had been getting their water exclusively from the neighboring Town of Glenville until the situation with the water authority was rectified.
The town uses 150,000 gallons of water from the Saratoga County Water Authority per day with the rest of the town getting its water from Glenville.
Southworth said officials at the water authority have been conducting frequent water flushing tests and all water samples have come back under acceptable limits according to the New York State Department of Health.
Delaware Engineering has been hired by the county to solve any lingering issues, Southworth said.
