The Village of Croton-on-Hudson Water System
Approximately 90% of the Village’s population are supplied by municipal hookup; the remainder are supplied by individual wells. The water comes from an aquifer beneath the Croton River, not from the New York City reservoir supply. The Village maintains its own supply and distribution system consisting of three well pumps at the well fields, four storage tanks located throughout the Village, and a network of mains and pipes. The only treatment consists of chlorine added at the well field for disinfection; no fluoride is added to the Village's water supply. A water quality report is prepared each year and includes detailed information on water quality. Billing for water is on a six month cycle.
