Is it time to establish a Seneca County water and sewer authority?

There have been discussions about creating a Seneca County Water & Sewer Authority for years. In light of recent issues with the county’s two south end sewer districts and its sole water district, those discussions are now back on.

Tonight, the Board of Supervisors Public Works Committee will revisit the issue.

An authority is a legal entity with the power to allocate resources for water treatment and distribution systems and wastewater collection, treatment and discharge throughout the county.

Other Public Works Committee agenda items include considering motions to approve hiring Stantec as the consulting firm to manage the Lodi Point culvert project for $150,900, authorizing the solicitation of bids for a new above ground master water meter for the Romulus connection and doing the State Environmental Quality Review Act Type II study on the infiltration and inflow study of the county’s two sewer districts.
