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.

Mayor Griffith

 

The shoreline stabilization project is complete.  This project will protect and secure 600 feet of the parcel on the waterfront.  This is a DEC approved design, and required; what is present now as a part of the project will branch out and grow in the spring.

 

Mayor Griffith thanked DPW for putting up the lights and holiday decorations.

 

Winterfest has been rescheduled for Saturday, December 18, however, it will be based on the weather.  Presently, rain is in the forecast once again.

 

Please do remember that the winter parking ordinance is now in effect.

 

A big thank you to Bard College for their donation matching of up to $250,000.00 for the firehouse expansion project.  Mayor Griffith thanked President Botstein and his staff for this generous donation.

 

Also, coming up is the 150th anniversary of the incorporation of Tivoli.  Tivoli was incorporated in 1872, and there is a big celebration committee that has been formed.  We are not sure what the celebration will be at this point, however, the Village of Tivoli will certainly get the birthday party it deserves.  Trish Tieger will be heading the committee and the celebration.  Trish’s late husband, Bernie, was the head of the committee which held a large celebration in 1972 for the 100-year anniversary.  Do look for information about the celebration which will be held, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, June 17, 18, and 19, 2022!
