Private Water Line Question

So I am desperate and hoping someone may have something to offer here. We have a “private water line” bringing municipal water to 7 households in Orange County, NY. Apparently this water line was supposed to have a clause to be taken over by the town in the 60s but it was never written in and the town refuses to take on it’s cost. We pay taxes for water from the town but we are on the hook if anything happens to the water line paying for excavation, repair, etc out of pocket. Last repair was needed about a month ago and a few of the families were brought to tears from the cost which is extremely expensive even split 7 ways. It now looks like we have another leak that needs addressing under my driveway bubbling up through the pavement and creating a bubble. The water line runs under town public streets but is still considered our property to maintain. We pay taxes to maintain public water lines but must also pay to fix our own. I can provide more info but I really have no idea what to do here. Wanted to see if anyone here had any ideas.

TLDR: Private water line runs under public property to bring municipal water that we pay for but still have to pay out of pocket to maintain water line.
