The Town of Halfmoon, located in Saratoga County, New York has an existing municipal water system consisting of: The Town of Halfmoon Consolidated Water District and Water District No. 1. The Town’s water system currently serves over 15,000 residents in the Town of Halfmoon.
The Town of Halfmoon is bordered by: the Town of Stillwater and the City of Mechanicville to the north; the Hudson River to the east; the Mohawk River and the Town of Waterford to the south; and Interstate Highway 87 (i.e., the Northway) and the Town of Clifton Park to the west. Development of the Town’s water system generally began in the southwesterly part of the Town, and has rapidly expanded both north along the Northway corridor and east across the southern border of the Town. The water systems northern end includes the Vosburgh Road, Johnson Road, Smith Road, Pruyn Hill Road, and Raylinsky Lane area of Town.
Water Districts Nos. 1 and 3 were created in the 1970’s; Water Improvement Area No. 1 and Water Districts Nos. 4 and 5 were created in the 1980’s; and Water Districts Nos. 2,6,7,8,9,10,11, and 14 and the extensions were created in the 1990’s; Water Districts Nos. 12 and 15 completed in 2001. In 2001 the Town of Halfmoon consolidated all Districts into one with three zones. In 2012 all three zones will become one.
The development of the Town’s water system over the past thirty years was due primarily to the inadequate individual well supplies in the Town, as well as the growth the Town experienced in response to the construction of the Northway. The need for an adequate, reliable, and dependable water source to serve the existing water service areas is of paramount importance to the Town of Halfmoon.
The Towns main water source is a 7 MGD Water Treatment Plant with it’s source being the Hudson River. The supply is free of contamination and is in compliance with the Safe Drinking Water Act Standard. The Town has emergency connections with Town of Waterford, Cilfton Park Water Authority and City of Troy. We are currently receiving water from the City of Troy while the EPA dredging project takes place in the Hudson River. This water source is from the Tomhannock Reservoir and is also treated with fluoride.
The system has approximately 130 miles of pipe, 2400 valves and 1250 fire hydrants. The system has four water storage tanks sized at 400,000 gallons, 750,000 gallons, 800,000 gallons and 1,000,000 gallons.
The average daily consumption is 2.0 MGD and a maximum day of 3.0 MGD.
Our municipal water customers receive a water bill for usage on a quarterly basis/ January, April, July and October. A penalty is applied if the quarterly bill is not received by the applied due date. Any outstanding payments that are not received by November 1, will be applied to their January tax bill.
For any billing information, please contact 233-7489. All payments are to be made payable to the Receiver of Taxes and can be made in person in the Town Hall or can be mailed to 2A Halfmoon Town Plaza, Halfmoon, NY 12065.
The Town is continuously upgrading and expanding the water system to provide the residents with the best water system possible.
If you are in a water district and have not yet hooked up to the municipal water, please call and we will explain the process to you.
