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.

Deputy Mayor Majer mentioned checking out the Tivoli Free Library.  She added, be aware of icy conditions in Tivoli Bays.  Do be careful.  Also, however, in Tivoli Bays, many owls have been seen at around dusk, along with foxes.


Enjoy this window of time when ticks are not around, and poison ivy.  Enjoy the winter, but be safe.

Mayor Griffith reminded residents that winter is here, and sidewalks must be clear following snowfall within 24 hours; please do remember that the winter parking ordinance is now in effect; please abide by the rules for parking in the municipal lots.
