Map of existing water mains and their size:
In order to obtain funding, you need to obtain approval from USDA.
The main criteria they want is the income of those residents who will be in the new water district. Income surveys are a very difficult process as you may guess. Residents have been reluctant to provide that information even though it is conducted by an outside source not the town.
Thus, we are waiting for the 2020 census results which will determine if income surveys are still needed. If they are needed, we will go without income surveys using traditional bank funding, using American Rescue Plan Dollars to help lower the costs, versus USDA funding.
We should know where we stand soon.
Please be patient.
This is a very long process with many government agencies needed to approve.
The new water main installed for Kendall Water District #8 is now in service and ready to provide water to your home or business.
1. Things you need to do with your well before we activate your
service. A meter jumper/spacer is available for your use in
reconfiguring your plumbing. After your portion of the water service is
connected at the property line, contact us to schedule the well
inspection, meter installation and water turn on.
2. Keep using the well until the morning of the appointment.
That morning, at a minimum, you will need to cut & cap the well plumbing
inside the building. Decommissioning the well entirely is more
efficient but not always possible due to weather conditions. Make
certain that, by 12:00 noon of the scheduled day, the well plumbing is
physically separated from the new plumbing. We will then install the
meter, inspect the well system modifications, and turn the water on. If
the well is not totally decommissioned, you have 30 days to complete it.
3. If you are choosing to keep the well active after the public
water is turn on, we must have the Access Easement or Backflow
requirements met before the meter is installed. Incomplete requirements
for keeping the well active could result in delays in public water
activation or discontinuation of service.
4. Suggestion: Fill a few jugs with water before disconnecting
the well. They will help get you through the 2-4 hour transition
5. We will refund the deposit to the most current property owner
after the inspection is deemed complete. Please keep this in mind if
you plan to sell the property before activating the public water supply.
The refund will go to the new owner.

As part of The Town of Kendall’s Water District No. 8 project, a new water main is being constructed along Kendall and Creek Road.
Property owners within Water District No. 8 wishing to connect to the water main must complete the service signup packet provided by the Monroe County Water Authority, installation of the private side water service (from the House to the Right of Way), and submit all required connection fees in full by .
Once the MCWA receives the completed signup packet and payment, property owners will be provided a stake to locate where they would like the curb stop / water service to be placed along the Right of Way. Property owners must have their private water service installed approximately ten (10) feet beyond that the proposed curb stop location prior in order for Kendall’s Contractor to connect the water main to the private water service.
Property owners are responsible for all costs associated with the private side installation of their water service (from the House to the Right of Way), internal plumping changes, and private well disconnection. All modifications to private wells must be performed in accordance with New York State Department of Health and New York State Department of Environmental Conservation requirements.
If you have questions regarding the signup packet or water service installation contact Virginia Smith at MCWA at (585) 442-2001 ext. 229. The MCWA service signup packet provides additional information about water services and outlines what property owners are responsible for.
LaBella Associates is the Town’s engineering consultant for the project. If you have any questions or concerns, the Resident Inspector, Tom Guerin may be contacted in the field or at (585) 729-9075.
– A pre-construction meeting was held Tuesday May 26, 2020 between the Town, engineer, contractor and USDA Rural Development. The installation of the water line is scheduled to begin on or about June 8, 2020.
Monroe County Water Authority should be sending out service signup packets to Water District #8 residents informing them of hook-up procedures, deposits required and what needs to be done with existing wells.
Utilities should be contacted before any digging is done to run the water line to your dwelling.
) after several delays is on back on track. Bids for installing the water lines have been advertised in the Hamlin Herald and the closing date for those bids is January 24, 2020 at 2:00 p.m. Once the contractor is chosen by the Town Board and weather permits, installation of the water line will begin.
The Town has secured funding from USDA Rural Development for the installation of water lines for public water. Easements have to be signed and then USDA will have to give the Town the okay to go out for bid. The Town is hoping for completion in 2020.
– would encompass all the streets in Kendall that still need and want public water.
The Town is waiting to find out what the median household income reported on the 2015 census was. If that figure qualifies for grant money from USDA Rural Development, individual household incomes would not be necessary speeding up the overall process.
The water line is installed for ,
Creek Rd. Landscaping and water testing will be taking place.
The Town Board will be meeting with LaBella Associates to discuss how to move forward with the next steps in the pursuit of water for town roads and residents.
All piping for water is in the ground for , Norway Rd. The water line has been pressure tested. Disinfection and water samples will be going to the lab for testing and await approvals from the Health Department and Monroe County Water Authority. Drilling will begin for the residents on the far side of the line along with clean up and restoring of ditches, yards, driveways and the roadside in the coming weeks.
Advertisements for bids for , Creek Rd. for materials and construction have been published. Funding has been received and construction will be able to begin as soon as the selected contractor can begin the installation.
Funding for , Kendall Rd. has been secured for installation in 2019.
has been formed for West Kendall Rd. the Town Board is working with USDA Rural Development for funding. Installation of the water line is tentatively scheduled for 2020.
The Town Supervisor received a commitment letter from USDA Rural Development December 29,2016 for grant money and a loan at a 1.375% interest rate for public water for Water District #7, Norway Rd. The timeline for installation of the water line on Norway Rd. is on tract to start this spring.
The Town Supervisor has also secured a $150,000 SAMS grant for public water on Creek Rd.(Water District#9). This water line will connect Water District #7, Norway Rd. to Water District #8, Creek/Kendall Rds. This connection will complete a loop of public water.
The Town Board is still waiting for grant funding to be secured for Water District #8. The next application to be submitted to USDA Rural Development will be for a grant for public water serving West Kendall Rd.
The Town’s engineering firm LaBella Associates has submitted to USDA Rural Development preliminary applications for both Norway Road and Kendall/Creek Roads. The Town is waiting for a reply from Rural Development for the next step in the process to obtain the grants for water. If all goes according to the timetable set up by Labella, ground-breaking would begin in May of 2017.
The Town Board continues to navigate through the governmental process to apply for grant money from USDA Rural Development for new water districts for Norway and Kendall/Creek Roads.
Well surveys have been completed for the proposed water districts and a letter composed by LaBella Associates to USDA Rural Development outlined Â the need for public water on those roads because of bacterial and chemical issues with the wells that were tested.
LaBella Associates has asked the Highway Superintendent to dig test holes on Norway and Kendall Roads. The results of the test holes will help to determine the ease or difficulty in digging trenches for the new water lines.
West Kendall Road residents are currently having their wells tested. Results will be forwarded to USDA Rural Development.
Surveys were mailed on August 6th.
The Town Board has been working very diligently with LaBella Engineering Associates exploring where the next water district(s) could be established. After much research and discussion, it was determined that portions of Norway, Kendall, and Creek roads would be the best roads to start with. Income surveys were sent out to these roads. LaBella Associates determined from the results of these surveys that portions of Norway Rd. Kendall Road and Creek Road would be eligible to apply for grants from USDA Rural Development and they have submitted the survey results to USDA Rural Development for consideration and acceptance for two proposed water districts. One district would be portions of Norway Rd. and the other district would be portions of Kendall Rd. and portions of Creek Rd.
West Kendall Road has also provided income surveys to LaBella Associates and we anticipate favorable acceptance of these surveys by Rural Development too.
USDA Rural Developments grant limitations will determine when and where the next water districts can be established.
The Town Board continues to focus on obtaining public water to Kendall residents who want and need water.
