Kiryas Joel wins court case

The State of New York Supreme Court Appellate Division has ruled that Kiryas Joel can draw water from its well on Route 32 in Mountainville.

The use of the well had been blocked by an injunction while the court considered an appeal from Kiryas Joel’s neighbors. In a 10-page document, the court rejected the appeal today.

As a result, Kiryas Joel will be permitted to draw up to 612,000 gallons a day from the site.
