To purchase or lease, in the name of the authority, any water supply system, water distribution system, including plants, works, instrumentalities or parts thereof and appurtenances thereto, lands, easements, rights in land and water rights, rights-of-way, contract rights, franchises, approaches, connections, dams, reservoirs, water mains and pipe lines, pumping stations and equipment, or any other prop- erty incidental to and included in such system or part thereof, and any improvements, extensions, and betterments, situated within the county, or in Genesee county, or in the town or village of Victor, THE VILLAGE OF BLOOMFIELD and the towns of East Bloomfield and West Bloomfield in Ontario county, or in the village of Holley and the town of Clarendon in Orleans county for the purpose of supplying water for domestic, commer- cial, and public purposes at retail to individual consumers within the county of Monroe or in the manner provided by subdivision seven of this section; and as a means of so acquiring for such purposes, and subject to the approval of the public service commission, the authority may purchase all of the stock of any existing privately owned water corpo- ration or company, and thereafter, within a reasonable time, such water corporation or company shall be dissolved; 6. To construct and develop any water supply system, water distrib- ution system, including plants, works, instrumentalities, or parts ther- eof, and appurtenances thereto, dams, reservoirs, water mains, pipe
lines, pumping stations and equipment, or any other property incidental to or included in such system or part thereof within the county of Monroe, or in Genesee county, or in the town or village of Victor, THE VILLAGE OF BLOOMFIELD and the towns of East Bloomfield and West Bloom- field in Ontario county, or in the village of Holley and the town of Clarendon in Orleans county. To acquire, by condemnation, in the name of the authority in the counties of Monroe and Genesee, or in any other county or municipality specifically enumerated in the first sentence of this subdivision, or in the name of the county of Monroe in the case of any water facilities to be owned and financed by such county pursuant to subdivision sixteen-b of this section, lands, easements, rights in land and water rights, and rights-of-way within the counties of Monroe and Genesee, or in any other county or municipality specifically enumerated in the first sentence of this subdivision, in the manner provided by this title; or to purchase or lease lands, easements, rights in land and water rights, and rights-of-way in connection therewith within the coun- ty of Monroe or within Genesee county, or in any other county or munici- pality specifically enumerated in the first sentence of this subdivi- sion; and to own and operate, maintain, repair, improve, reconstruct, enlarge, and extend, subject to the provisions of this title, any of its properties acquired or constructed under this title, all of which, together with the acquisition of such properties, are hereby declared to be public purposes; 7.

The fact that any municipality has procured or is about to procure an independent source of water supply shall not prevent such municipality from purchasing water from the authority.

Any agreement between a municipality outside of the county and the authority for the sale of water to or within such municipality shall be subject to the approval of the legislative body of the contiguous county wherein such municipality is located. Not only may the authority sell any surplus water it may have developed, but it may develop and provide a sufficient amount of water so as to supply water outside of the county to individual consumers, any municipality, or privately owned public water supply and distribution system; S 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
