Malta Officials Discuss Town Water Report

MALTA – After the completion of a project costing more than $3 million, residents in the hamlet of Maltaville could be supplied with quality water by the existing infrastructure of Saratoga County and the Town of Stillwater, according to report that town officials discussed Monday in a special meeting on the subject.

The report was signed by Mike Clark, senior project engineer; and Joseph Lanaro, senior principal of The Chazen Companies. It focuses on the creation of what is commonly called the “Maltaville Water District.”

“The preliminary costs presented within this report will undergo further refinement when the Town of Malta advances the creation of this water district,” the Chazen report states, noting how this particular matter has been studied since 2011 because of “poor well yields” in the area.

The Chazen Companies report proposes connecting to 12-inch water transmission pipes on Joyce Road in the Town of Stillwater. The Saratoga County Water Authority presently supplies that particular water, but the town maintains the pipes.

New 12-inch water lines would have to be installed along Knapp Road and Route 67 in Malta to supply Maltaville, according to the report. The total cost of the project would exceed $3.53 million. 

Malta Town Councilman Craig Warner stated previously that the town may seek low-interest loans to fund the Maltaville project.
