Lawler said the communities should receive a full-time paid water supply through the Troy pipeline because the planned testing won?t be timely enough to turn off the river water intakes if a problem is found. ?We cannot pay for water when they have good water? Skopeck responded. In a related development the Saratoga County Water Authority ? which is chaired by Lawler ? decided Wednesday to look at the feasibility of extending its water system to the area.
