Warren - West Seneca needs to transfer its water to ECWA
In 2015 the Town bonded close to $8 million to perform repairs on our water system and to convert from a leased managed to direct service with the Erie County Water Authority. At the time we were told that the repairs would be completed in November 2016 with the transfer to ECWA to take place in early 2017. However, this does not to have been done since in the most recent budget we are still paying for the water districts.
