Drinking Water Supply Survey

In order to help protect the availability and quality of our drinking water resources, the New York Rural Water Association (a non-profit organization) is working with the Town of Dryden on a source water protection plan. New York Rural Water Association is a federally-funded organization that provides free technical assistance to rural and small communities across New York.  An initial step in the development of the source water protection plan is to collect information on the nature of water supply issues here in Dryden.

Your help in our effort to protect the drinking water of Dryden would be greatly appreciated. Our hope is that you can spend a few minutes and complete the following water supply survey. Responses to this survey will be confidentially sent to the New York Rural Water Association. They hope to collect the responses to this survey by June 30, 2016. Thank you very much for your assistance.

Town Board Response re: May 3rd Referendum Vote


Statement on May 3rd Special Town Election

May 4, 2016


Registered voters in the Town of Dryden decided yesterday, by a margin of 1188 to 936, not to purchase a 15 acre undeveloped parcel located on Pinckney Road and Fall Creek.   The Town Board is pleased with the strong turnout and is proud of the town’s administration of the special referendum, which was planned and conducted with the utmost professionalism.   The Board is especially grateful to the Town Clerk, Bambi Avery, and her staff for their efforts in implementing the Board’s plan for this referendum.   While it’s clear there is a need for more recreational opportunities throughout the town, it’s also clear that majority of voters prefer the town not to acquire this particular parcel for that purpose.   The Board commends residents for expressing their views and participating in the referendum.   Results of this vote will help guide the Board in future decisions concerning the enhancement of recreational opportunities.   The Board is hopeful that another purchaser can be found who will be a good steward of the Pinckney Road parcel, and looks forward to assisting in that effort.
