Project Begins to Install Municipal Pump to Eliminate Low Water Pressure

The water project set to fix over two decades of low water pressure near the Charcoal Corral and surrounding areas, is about to begin. Additional pipe can be seen on the side surface of Camp Road. The water system in that area is a cooperative effort between the Town of Castile and the Village of Perry to supply that community area. 

When the original pipe went in, "someone miscalculated the height of the tower in the village, and there is not enough pressure there to meet health department regulations,” said Jeremy DeLyser of the Clark Patterson Lee, planning firm of Rochester. The new pressurized system also needs to be looped back to its source as opposed to dead ending at its most distant point. 

So in early February of this year, town officials approved a bond worth $1.085 million that will go toward the installation of a municipal booster pump that will assist many of the surrounding residences. The completed project should increase a dismal 20 pounds of water pressure to somewhere between 40 and 50 pounds of pressure (35 pounds is baseline pressure).

The Corral and homes on Locus Lane will notice the most dramatic change of all since their pressure was the lowest. Other areas that would see improvements are Thompson Avenue, Chapman Road, Camp Road, Birchwood Acres and most of the Silver Lake Institute area. The project should take between 8 and 12 weeks to complete.
