Seneca BOS committee considers county acquistion of sewer line

After years of delays, Seneca County may soon be the proud owner of a five-mile long sewer line from Tyre to Seneca Falls on Route 414.

The board’s Public Works Committee will meet Tuesday to consider a resolution presented to it on Nov. 27 but tabled while the Junius, Tyre and Seneca Falls town boards ironed out all issues. The sewer line was installed by the county Industrial Development Agency about 20 years ago to serve the Petro Travel Center near Thruway Exit 41 in Tyre and other users south on Route 414, including the Seneca Meadows Landfill.

The wastewater flows to the Seneca Falls sanitary sewer system for treatment at the town’s wastewater treatment plant on Seneca Street.

The motion before the committee will direct the county manager to execute an inter-municipal agreement for the wastewater conveyance, treatment, operation and maintenance of the Route 318 and 414 sewer line.

It also would direct the county manager to execute all documents to complete the acquisition of the sewer line from the IDA. If approved, the motion would go to the full board for a final vote Feb. 12.
