Bedford Hills – Katonah Business Sewer District

The Town’s engineers, Woodard & Curran, engineers, are on schedule for the preparing the design and construction plans for the sewer system.   We continue to target Summer/Early Fall of 2018 to bid out the construction work for the system based and to complete the construction as early as Summer/Fall 2019.   By way of background, the Town will be taking over the wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) of the Department of Corrections and Community Supervision (DOCCS) which presently serves DOCCS’ two correctional facilities in Bedford Hills.  We anticipate that the WWTP will have a limited amount of available capacity after giving effect to the flows from properties in the sewer district.

The survey and geotechnical work which we described in the July has been completed as have meetings with property owners to identify their likely connection points to the sewer main.  Fortunately, it appears that we will not need to acquire easements or property interests for the siting of pump stations or other major components of the system.  We also have heard from property owners with cesspools along the sewer line but not in the district eligible to connect to the sewer system.  Discussions with NYS Department of Corrections and Community Supervision, NYC Department of Environmental Protection and Westchester County Health Department all are going well.  Please also see the Woodard & Curran’s Design Status Report dated November 10, 2017 for further detail (see link below).
