Welcome to Whitney Point, NY

The Village of Whitney Point is located in the Town of Triangle in northern Broome County. The village lies at the confluence of the Tioughnioga and Otselic Rivers. Native Americans of the Iroquois Confederacy once used these rivers as highways through the region. Today, the village is intersected by many highways, including Interstate Route 81, and Routes 11, 79, 26, and 206. The village also serves as the "gateway" to the Finger Lakes region for north bound travelers, and to the Greater Binghamton area for southbound travelers. Although Whitney Point has a population of only about 1,000 residents, the village is the commercial center for approximately 10,000 residents of northern Broome County, and is the home of the Whitney Point Central School District. The proximity to area colleges and universities, the many recreational activities available, and the beautiful scenery surrounding the village, provides the Whitney Point area with a great quality of life that makes it a great place to visit or to live.

2020 ANNUAL DRINKING WATER QUALITY REPORT AVAILABLE ONLINE (updated 6/1/2021)

To comply with State regulations, the Village of Whitney Point will be annually issuing a report describing the quality of your drinking water. The purpose of this report is to raise your understanding of drinking water and awareness of the need to protect our drinking water sources. Last year, your tap water met all State drinking water health standards. We are proud to report that our system has never violated a maximum contaminant level or any other water quality standard. This report provides an overview of last year's water quality. Included are details about where your water comes from, what it contains, and how it compares to State standards.
