KENDALL – Construction will start next week on a new water district in Kendall, Town Supervisor Tony Cammarata.

Water District No. 8 will serve about 50 homes on portions of Norway, Creek and Kendall roads. It will also close loops with districts 7 and 9.

The town received a $500,000 grant for the district and also a low-interest loan for about $840,000 for the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

The state Department of Transportation gave the notice to proceed, the last step in the process, Cammarata said.

The system is expected to be operational in early November.

“We’re very excited about this,” Cammarata said this morning. “We hope to have them up and running this year.”

The waterline ensures residents in the district will have safe drinking water and don’t have to worry about the quantity. It won’t run dry.

Cammarata said the town has pushed to expand waterlines, and also is pushing for Water District No. 10 on West Kendall Road.

“Moving forward the town overall is a better position to entice future residents to move into our community if water is available,” he said this morning. “In order to successfully support our school district and our community, water is needed. It is a staple of life.”
