There are 12 locations that bear some resemblance to the East 50th request for water, i. e. not served by a water main but within 300 feet of where a water main could be constructed. The cost to extend water mains to these twelve locations is estimated to be $120,375 plus customer costs of approximately $1000 per customer for meter taps and sets.
Two weeks ago ,the Utility sent out letters to connect to water service within one year to 96 residents currently not connected to water service but who are within 300 feet of a water main per the current ordinance. There is some strong resistance to connect to water service and many of these individuals are not paying solid waste fees but their solid waste is being collected.
Another 39 residences are currently vacant and not connected to available water service. Condemned buildings have been excluded.
There are other circumstances under which residences are not known to be connected to water.
