Phoenicia seeks to increase spring water flow to municipal system

A Daily Freeman article.

Due to booming business during a summer that has brought throngs of thirsty visitors, the Phoenicia Water District has started a project to reclaim precious spring water for the hamlet to make sure there’s enough to go around.
   Water Commissioner Rick Ricciardella said Monday work will soon begin on carving a road up the mountain across the street from the district filtration plant to grant access to the half dozen natural springs that have supplied water to the hamlet for the past 100 years.
   After a century of thunderstorms, spring thaws and summer droughts, erosion has gradually restricted the flow from those springs to reservoirs built to hold the supply, he said.
