Tupper Lake looks to switch back to lake water after long move to wells
It isn’t always easy for Adirondack communities looking for a public water source.
A couple of weeks ago I wrote about lingering frustrations in Ticonderoga over a long-running move to groundwater wells. Supervisor Mark Wright earlier this month handily beat back an electoral challenge there.
In Tupper Lake, incoming mayor Mary Fontana will have her hands full with a major project to switch the village water supply back to Tupper Lake and overhaul an old filtration plant. The village had moved to new groundwater wells in 2018, but a problem with iron in the ground is creating a problem of foul-looking water coming out of the taps.
