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.

Chair Mike Billeci recused himself from the meeting.

98 North Road – Site Plan Review: Applicant Christie Billeci stated that there were two questions posed by Planner Michele Greig at the January workshop. The first was whether the property is within 500 feet of a NYS Certified Agricultural District. The answer is yes. However, it was determined by Dutchess County Planning after a review that the matter was of local concern. The second was whether there are any DEC wetlands on the property. The answer is no. Ms. Billeci also presented a completed short SEQR form. The plans were reviewed by the Board and a discussion followed.

Ginger Grab made a motion to approve the Site Plan as presented. Donna Matthews seconded, all in favor. Motion carried.

Chair Billeci returned to the meeting. The Board reviewed the minutes from the October 15, 2012 Planning Board Meeting. Ginger Grab moved to approve the minutes as presented, Donna Matthews seconded. All in favor. Motion carried.
