STONY POINT - Portions of Stony Point could be cut off from the sewer system in the town of Haverstraw by the end of the year, and Stony Point officials are pushing back.

The officials are planning to seek a court injunction stopping the cutoff on the grounds that their contract for sewer service runs for another 10 years.

"In the original contract, the agreement, which was done in 2005, we have it," says Stony Point Supervisor Geoff Finn. "It states right here, 'this agreement shall be for 20 years.'"

Finn contends that Stony Point's system would not be able to handle the excess sewage and, if Haverstraw follows through with its plan, it would be an environmental disaster.

Stony Point officials say they believe the war over waste is an effort by Haverstraw to help advance a planned Legoland amusement in Letchworth Village.

Haverstraw officials declined to comment on pending litigation.
