THE GREENWICH WATER CO.
The Greenwich, Conn., Water company, of which the Port Chester, N. Y., Water company is an integral portion, is buying up all the farm lands in the northern part of the town of Greenwich which are on the watershed. Water has become a very important matter to the towns contiguous of New York, and rights must be secured now, or, in future years, when more water is needed, they may be very much more difficult to obtain. Nearly all the available water supply of the vicinity has been absorbed by New York, and there are no very large sources of supply between Stamford and the Housatonic river. The Greenwich Water company has obtained the rights to the watershed in the vicinity and its locality will be amply provided for for many years to come. But, even with all that, the supply may one day be unable to meet the demand. Mount Vernon, New Rochelle, N. Y., and other towns west of the Greenwich company are likely to have trouble about securing all the water needed at no distant date.
