The Woodland Acres community comprises of single-family homes and serves approximately 150 residents through 38 residential connections. The Woodland Acres Treatment Facility had been experiencing reduced output from its wells and needed solutions to improve water service to the Woodland Acres community. The development had been serviced by a small water treatment plant and two wells. The wells were no longer able to produce adequate water supply for the area, and attempts to develop new wells in the area had been unsuccessful.
To remedy the issue, KC proposed an expansion of the existing water service from the Town of Wallkill’s Consolidated Water District #1 to serve the Woodland Acres community.
The project extended water via a new 8” PVC C900 water main from a dead end in the Town of Wallkill’s consolidated water district at the end of Orchard Terrace to the Woodland Acres development off Sands Road. The development is now provided with adequate water by the extension, and the project eliminated the need to build a replacement water treatment plant at the site. The project also allowed the Town of Wallkill Water Department to discontinue operation of the Woodland Acres Water Treatment Plant. The project also eliminated the dead-end water line stub in Orchard Hill.
The construction phase involved construction through easements across private property, a NYSDOT road crossing, installation of a meter pit, and tapped connections at each end of the installation.
