Seneca County will consider launching water and sewer authority

  • Staff Report 

The Seneca County Board of Supervisors is set to consider the formation of a county water and sewer authority. This move comes as a response to a recommendation by MRB Group, a Rochester-based consultant hired by the board to study the county’s water and sewer service options. The proposed authority aims to streamline the administration and operations of water and sewer services, which are currently managed by various districts including villages, towns, and the county itself.

The agenda for the meeting, scheduled for 6 p.m., will address the motion to establish the authority. This entity would assume full control over all existing municipal water and sewer systems in Seneca County. The resolution highlights the board’s belief in the authority’s ability to provide more comprehensive and cost-effective water and sewer treatment services for the county.

Additionally, the board will discuss allocating up to $10,000 from the county’s American Rescue Plan Act funds to hire MRB Group for consulting and support services in establishing the authority. This step marks a significant development in improving Seneca County’s infrastructure management and service efficiency.
