Our water plant crew has recently completed a filter bed re-sanding project which greatly improved the quality of our water.  However, there needs to be more extensive work completed in order to facilitate our compliance with an administrative order from the EPA for exceeding the maximum contaminant levels in our drinking water.

The Village of Delanson applied for and has been awarded a New York State water infrastructure improvement act grant in the amount not to exceed $1,060,455.00

This grant will help fund necessary improvements to the water treatment plant.

Details of the project scope will be forthcoming in a series of informational meetings to be scheduled in the coming months. Please check our calendar of events for the scheduled meetings.


Congratulations, Donna and Larry O’Connor!

Donna and Lawrence O’Connor were recognized for their restoration of 1696 Main Street in the Village of Delanson. The “Jenkins House” was built in 1876 for the stationmaster of the Delaware and Hudson Railroad. This grand Victorian home has survived fire, and in 1964, the widening of Delanson’s main thoroughfare, which drastically changed the village forever.
