Seneca County’s version of the Civil War — North vs. South — returned to the floor of the Seneca County Board of Supervisors Tuesday.
Once again, the Public Works Committee debated which company to hire to study the sewer issues in the county’s southern end.
Two engineering firms are vying to examine the infiltration and inflow of storm water and ground water in county sewer districts Nos. 1 and 2. The reports — each of which costs $36,000 — are part of a larger sewer upgrade planned for the towns of Varick, Romulus and Ovid and would result in recommendations on how to eliminate the problems.
The state has made $60,000 worth of grants available to pay for most of the studies. The remaining $12,000 would come from sewer district funds.
The deadline for that work to be completed is Sept. 29.
