Study in-progress for Seneca County water and sewer authority

A study is underway in Seneca County to determine the feasibility of a county-run water and sewer services agency.

County Manager Mitch Rowe told the county Board of Supervisors on Tuesday, March 22 that the study is being conducted by MRB Group of Rochester, according to Finger Lakes Times. The study is funded through a $75,000 grant from New York State.

Currently, much of the county’s water comes from water treatment plants operated by the villages of Interlaken and Waterloo, the town of Seneca Falls, and the Willard plant (Water District No. 1).

The village of Waterloo, town of Seneca Falls, and sewer districts No. 1, 2, and 3 provide the county with wastewater treatment services. There are also treatment plants in Willard and Romulus that are part of Districts No. 1 and 2.
