New York - Four Municipalities Partner In Lawsuit Challenging State Issuance Of Well Permit For Kiryas Joel Pipeline
New York - Four municipalities have partnered in filing a lawsuit challenging a permit issued by the state in October allowing the Village of Kiryas Joel to construct a well in Cornwall as part of its pipeline project.
RECORDONLINE.com (http://bit.ly/1O3GFE5) reports that the lawsuit—-filed in state Supreme Court in Albany last week by the Town of Cornwall, the Village of Cornwall-on-Hudson, and the town and village of Woodbury—-wants the KJ permit invalidated on the grounds that Kiryas Joel and the state Department of Environmental Conservation failed to take a “hard look” at the potential impact the well could have on neighboring communities and private land owners.
As currently planned, the well would be constructed on land owned by Kiryas Joel next to Route 32 in the Mountainville section of Cornwall and would allow the village to pump 612,000 gallons of water per day.
The October 1 permit gave Kiryas Joel its first state-approved water source for its pipeline project that began in 2013.
