Supervisors may introduce sewer use local law in Seneca

After some revisions and rewrites, the Seneca County Board of Supervisors appears ready to introduce the Seneca County Sewer Use local law Tuesday.

The board’s Public Works Committee approved the proposed law Oct. 22 and recommended it be passed by the full board. If it passes Tuesday, it will be subject to a public hearing at 6 p.m. Nov. 26 before final approval can be given.

The proposed law regulates the use of public and private sewers and drains, private sewage disposal systems, installation and connection of building lateral lines, and the discharge of waters and wastes into the public sewer system. There are penalties for violations of the law and for administration and management of the county’s three sewer districts.

The county is required to have a sewer use law for sewer districts within the county.
