South New Berlin Water District
Water Plant Operator: Ian Oldham - (607) 548-4041
The South New Berlin Water District was originally constructed in 1897. Improvements to water mains, drilling of a new well, and addition of new pumping and treatment equipment occurred in the mid – 1990s. The District generally serves areas in and around the hamlet of South New Berlin. This includes areas of the Town of New Berlin in Chenango County and the Towns of Morris and Butternuts in Otsego County.
Currently 134 hookups to the system exist serving approximately 400 users. A new project is underway to exactly define the boundaries of the District, create two new Water Districts (since the current district spans 3 Townships), and to add about 18 new hookups to the system. A new storage reservoir would be included as well as drilling a new well. Project completion is estimated to be about summer 2013.
