No H2O

Photo by Jason Kaplan No H2O On April 28, a contractor, hired by Central Hudson, was replacing a gas line at the corner of Academy Avenue and Main Street. The work resulted in a water main break forcing Cornwall Middle School and Cornwall Elementary School to close early that day. Work continued on Wednesday, resulting in another water main break. Schools weren’t closed, but water was provided.
