Public Notice Chloramines/Water Plant Update
The Seneca Falls Water Department is pleased to announce that all the repairs needed at the Seneca Falls Water Plant from the January 2014 Water Advisory are complete. The plant is currently implementing all treatment processes at this time, including the chloramines treatment process. As a reminder, Chloramines have little to no impact to our users; however those using dialysis equipment or maintaining fish tanks may need to take extra measures. Please check with your health care provider, or pet supply provider for any recommendations or precautions you may need to take. Great efforts by our department and collaboration with various outside sources have made this possible. Due to the nature of the original issue, all work has been paid for by insurance money, and will have no impact on your water rates. The Seneca Falls Water Department strives to provide its customers with quality water at an affordable price. We want to keep you updated and informed about your drinking water. If you have questions or concerns, please contact us at 315-568-6211. You may also find information online at www.awwa.org and www.epa.gov.
Effective immediately: The Town of Seneca Falls through combination of the old “Village” and “Town” of Seneca Falls Codes has created one uniform code, applicable to all residents. Inflow / Infiltration Inspections (Aka Sewer Inspections) are now required to be completed on all properties in Seneca Falls and all areas serviced by the public sewer of the Town. Procedure dictates (§230-64), that inspection be completed prior to the transfer of a property and to comply with code §230, Articles IV and VIII. The main purpose of the inspection requirement is to prevent stormwater from entering the wastewater sewer system that is ultimately treated at the Town’s wastewater treatment plant. This is required to ensure compliance with the NYS Department of Conservation. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the Water and Sewer Codes, please contact the Water Department at (315)568-6211. All Code questions can be research at www.generalcode.com or you can contact the Zoning & Code Enforcement Officer at (315)568-8013 for information.
