Slaterville Springs, 10/08/10 - Longtime Slaterville Springs residents remember what happened in 1990 when a bridge project over Six Mile Creek punctured their aquifer and left 15-to-20 homes with no water -- the county had to bring in a pump to supply residents with water for almost a year, said Tompkins County Legislator Frank Proto, R-Caroline and Danby.
