Tilcon offers to donate quarry to Rockland water supply

Tilcon offers to donate quarry to Rockland water supply (Hudson Valley, NY)The Tilcon company has offered to donate its quarry in Suffern to Rockland County to augment the county’s public water supply, County executive C. Scott Vanderhoef announced yesterday. The county is going to explore the proposal. Vanderhoef said the county, working with its health department and United Water, has determined the proposal is “both environmentally and financially feasible.” Preliminary environmental studies show the site is promising as a potable water resource, he said. The quarry has the potential to hold about 500 million gallons of water. Vanderhoef said after studies have been completed, the county plans to retain ownership of the property and enter into an agreement with United Water for the quarry to be operated as a water resource. The county also intends to have United Water pay for the needed infrastructure and improvements. United Water could possibly construct a water filtration plant at the quarry site or use the future reservoir to augment the flow in the Ramapo River, which supplies about 30 percent of Rockland’s water supply.
