The Ellicottville Water Division oversees the production, treatment, and distribution of the public water supply within the Town and Village of Ellicottville.  The public water supply consists of 3 wells, 4 storage tanks, miles of distribution lines, and multiple pressure reducing valves due to the drastic elevation changes within the municipality.  The Water Division is led by Tom Dineen and is based out of the Village DPW building on Mill Street.  Any permits issued by the Water Division in addition to any relevant construction detail standards and laws are available for download on this webpage.
