Attention Village of Waterville Residents
May 11, 2018


The village water tank will be out of service for routine maintenance beginning Monday, May 14 and remain out of service until further notice. The work is expected to take approximately one month to complete. During which time, Village residents are asked to be cognizant of water usage. Without the tank, the municipal water system is designed to handle normal day-to-day usage. However, excessive water use, such as filling a swimming pool, watering lawns, puts additional unnecessary strain on the system. Residents will be notified when the tank has been returned to service and the water usage advisory has been lifted.


The DPW thanks you for your compliance. Any questions, contact Superintendent of Public Works Jamie Bechy at 315-271-5290.

The village of Waterville is conveniently located in southern Oneida County, 12 miles south of Utica and one mile north of the crossroads of State Route 12 and State Route 20. 


Our village was settled in 1792 and was heralded as the Historic Hop Capital of the World. We are known for the notorious family of outlaws, The Loomis Gang and our Preserved Historic Triangle District is listed on the New York State Historic Preservation Register.


Waterville is a village in the very best sense of the word. We are a charming combination of pastoral beauty, historic 19th century Victorian architecture and central New York hospitality. While we strive to maintain the simple intimacy of CNY village life, we are boldly progressive with 21st century ideals infused throughout Waterville.


Our village boasts a cutting edge public library which also includes the Barton-Brown Observatory, home to the Mohawk Valley Astronomical Society. The Village Hall is a modern building whose large community room is the center of activity from Scouts to Senior Citizens. Waterville Central School's facilities are second to none including state of the art auditorium, sports turf soccer/football stadium and cutting edge sophisticated technology labs. 


This web site gives relevant information about the services and people involved with our village government. We hope you enjoy exploring our site and learning more about our wonderful Waterville!
