It’s true, Cazenovia, NY still uses wood for water lines. The repaving the article refers to is on my street too! Even as a guy that bemoans government spending, I think this is a case for swift legislation and government spending.
During the recent repaving of Burr and Williams streets, village employees unearthed a three-foot segment of original wooden water line, which was placed there and used sometime prior to 1890. As much of the existing water lines in the village of Cazenovia were installed around the same time period, local officials have begun to plan for the future of the community’s infrastructure. via Caz village board addresses water infrastructure | Cazenovia Republican.
