Village of Castleton-on-Hudson (population 1473)

Name of service/government operation: Water

Form of sharing: Village provides water to Town of Schodack residents

Services affected: Water

Year started: Not sure , but at least 10 years

Partners: town of Schodack

Primary goal(s)/motivation(s): Provide municipal water to Town residents because Town has no infrastructure to deliver municipal water to certain residents

What planning process preceded the sharing? Village just kept building out infrastructure into Town because Town had no interest in doing so.

What governance structures and/or agreements are required to maintain this agreement? inter municipal agreement

Challenges: Town would like more control over the water system since their residents are affected but village does not want to release additional water control to Town.

Benefits: town residents get municipal water, otherwise they would all need wells.

Impact on budget: Village charges a little extra to Town residents to cover Capital charges but overall providing this service has simply increased our customer base.

Impact on labor: Not enough to require additional personnel.

Impact on service: No impact
