Salina, New York

The Village of Salina was chartered in 1798.

The Salina Aqueduct Association was incorporated in 1825 by Sylvester F. Peck, Ezra M. Knapp, and Henry C. Rossiter to "supply the said village with fresh water by conduits or aqueducts."  No evidence has been found that this company built a system.

The Village of Salina was incorporated into the city of Syracuse in 1847, and was thereafter served by the water systems in that city.

Bulk water service in the Town of Salina is provided by the Onondaga County Water Authority and distributed by 27 local water districts.
