Currently at the sewer plant, we are awaiting the delivery of the new belt press, that eliminates wet sludge and allows for disposal of solid waste. In the interim, until we have a new belt press, we are required to pump sludge and this is occurring on a regular basis. This process makes a loud motor type sound and sounds like buzzing. The noise should not be of concern.

Dear Village of Trumansburg Water Customers,
We have been working diligently to test and bring on the water system. For several weeks we switched systems from one to another on a regular basis. This has water in the entire system cleanly running. Approximately 3 weeks ago, we shut down the Route 89 pump to enable new controls and distribution piping to be added and operated solely on the new water supply. There were no issues. Last week on Friday, we turned on the Route 89 pump house again and will operate with auto switching. Because of the sedentary nature for the one flow that was not on, when it was reinitiated it drew in extra sediment/pipe rust. To allay the brown water, the DPW has been flushing the hydrants to clear the flow.
A visual that may be helpful is that the water system is like a clock and when running the new system we are running water clockwise and when it switches to the original system it runs counterclockwise. It is bi-directional, if one is turned off for a length of time (week) the piping is still and sediment sinks and rust sinks in the pipes. When turned on again it, this is passed through our distribution pipes. Please note that the water is safe to drink.
It is expected that both systems will switch on a regular basis and will not raise the sediment ongoingly.
