ILION – A delivery of clean water for the village of Ilion will be made on Monday.
Two tankers of clean water will be parked near the fire station, which is located on Central Avenue in the village. They will have potable water for village residents only, and identification will need to be shown. Residents will have to bring their own containers to fill up and bring home.
If residents are housebound, they can either send someone to the municipal building with their identification to pick up, or the village will deliver the water to them.
The state is providing the tankers, along with 2,000 bottles of water.
At a village board meeting on Wednesday, Ilion Mayor Brian Lamica said they have been told by the state Department of Health that they had to come up with a plan to provide village residents with bottled water.
The village had a new aerator installed at the reservoir, and the water is expected to be clear by the end of October.
