ILION, N.Y. -- Village officials in Ilion are hoping that a new, two-mile water main will help clean up their water.

Ilion Mayor Brian Lamica says that village officials approved a plan to install a new pipe this coming spring.

That will connect village wells on the north end to the reservoir and water treatment system.

Lamica says it will cost around $3 million, and the project is part of the $32 million plan that was discussed late last year.

The village of Ilion is still considering a partnership with Mohawk Valley Water Authority, and if they do collaborate this water pipe would still be needed.
