Bedford Hills – Katonah Business Sewer District

The Town is proceeding well on the sewer project with our engineers, Woodard & Curran, on schedule for completing the design and construction plans this summer.  The Town then will bid out the construction work.   In conjunction with its design work, Woodard & Curran, also has reviewed and updated the estimated project costs set forth in the Map, Plan and Report and found that the such costs remain with the projected budget.

It is anticipated that construction will run through end of first quarter of 2021.    Please refer to the “Sewer District Annual Report 2017” posted below which provides background on the creation and scope of the sewer district, the Town’s planned operation of the wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) of the Department of Corrections and Community Supervision (DOCCS) and other aspects of the project.

The Town Board will be working with staff and the community in the coming weeks on the sewer law which is the basis for connection to and use of the system as well as the rate structure for financing its operation and maintenance. We will be holding informational sessions with the public prior to adoption of the law, the first of which will be on January 25 at 7:30 PM in the Katonah Village Library.  The Westchester County Department of Health, NYC Department of Environmental Protection and DOCCS also will be providing comments on the law.
