Tivoli Sewer Plant Replacement Project Public Forum 1/24 6:30PM

To all users of the Tivoli Sewer System,

The Village Board of Trustees and the Dutchess County Water and Wastewater Authority will hold an important public information forum on the Wastewater Treatment Plant Replacement Project on Tuesday January 24th at 6:30PM on the 3rd floor of Village Hall. The purpose of this forum is to provide maximum information about this project to those who are served by the facility.

Also present on the 24th will be a representative from Wright-Pierce, the engineering firm who is designing the new sewer plant and pump station.

The forum will be structured thusly:

  • A short description of the Dutchess County Water and Wastewater Authority.


  • A brief history of the Tivoli sewer system and its components: the plant, the collection system, and the pump station.


  • A report of the existing, aged plant and related infrastructure, and the noncompliance events and SPDES permit exceedances which require that it be replaced.


  • A description of the new plant’s design/technology, why it’s needed, and how it will be an improvement.


  • An explanation of the cost of the new plant.


  • Discussion of the collaborative effort to secure various funding sources to help pay for this.


  • A question-and-answer period.

The Tivoli Wastewater Treatment Plant is going to be completely replaced within the next 24 months and it is going to be expensive. I urge anyone who has questions about this critical project to attend this informational forum.

    The Village of Tivoli is hosting a Food and Clothing Donation Drive on Saturday, January 14th at Village Hall (86 Broadway). Volunteers will be welcoming donations between 12:30pm-3:30pm on the first floor of Village Hall. All donations will be redistributed in the local community. Please see the guidelines for donation items below.
    The food donations received will be given to the fabulous local charity organization RED HOOK RESPONDS. Some of the food donations will serve as ingredients for RHR prepared meals and others will go into the RHR food pantry at the Red Hook Community Center.
    Red Hook Responds began during the pandemic and continues today filling several needs in the community. One of these is food insecurity. The food donated in the food drive will benefit the community in two ways. RHR delivered almost 9,000 meals in 2022 and have been preparing over 240 meals a week so far this year which go out to community members in need.
    We anticipate giving the clothing donations to the Red Hook Community Center for their Community Clothes Closet.
    For food donations we welcome the following items in non-glass containers:
applesauce, canned beans, canned chicken, canned fish, canned meat, canned vegetables, cooking oils (oil and canola), crackers, dried herbs and spices, fruit canned or dry, granola bars, instant mashed potatoes, meals in a box, nuts, pasta, peanut butter, rice, shelf-stable and powdered milk, soup, stew, chili, whole grain cereal. (Please no junk food)!
    For clothing donations we welcome new and like new:
seasonal clothing (no undergarments), wearable accessories, purses and pocketbooks, footwear, NEW socks, children’s books, household textiles (no bedding of any kind), simple toys (no chords, batteries, or stuffed animals), small decorative household items (no lamps, chords, or electronics), kitchen cookware, utensils

Thank you for thinking of others in our community!
