MASSENA — A proposed joint water district serving the hamlets of Brasher Falls and Winthrop has been under discussion since 2010.

Now, members of both the Brasher and Stockholm town boards will meet at 7 p.m. Thursday in an effort to move the project forward.

Brasher Supervisor M. James Dawson said he previously received a letter from Public Health Engineer Ronald E. Sheppard from the state Department of Health suggesting the two boards hold a joint meeting.

They had applied for funding from the state’s Drinking Water Revolving Fund, but the initial application scored an 80, and funding is given only to projects scoring 145 or higher. But Mr. Dawson said that with recent water issues at St. Lawrence Central School, Brasher Falls, they could conceivably score more points. Grant funding recipients will be announced in late August.

The board members also seek funding from the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
