Municipal Sewage System Asset Management Pilot Program

DEC is conducting a three year pilot program to test and improve the Municipal Sewage System Asset Management Guide (PDF) (166 KB). DEC solicited volunteers for the pilot program in late 2015. More than 80 municipalities applied to participate and DEC chose those 10 that represent a variety of wastewater systems in order to learn how asset management works in different places around the state.

Municipalities Selected for the Municipal Sewage System Asset Management Pilot Program
Municipality Facility
Town of Bethlehem Dinmore Road Wastewater Treatment Plant
Town of Carmel Carmel Sewer District (CSD) 4, 5, 6 and 7
Village of Dolgeville Dolgeville Wastewater Treatment Facility
Village of Greenport Greenport Wastewater Treatment Plant
Village of Honeoye Falls Village of Honeoye Falls Wastewater Treatment Plant

Village of Vernon Village of Vernon Wastewater Treatment Plant

The municipalities will work with DEC and environmental engineering firm Barton & Loguidice (B&L) to develop or enhance their municipal asset management plans. During the pilot, the municipalities will implement their plans and provide feedback to DEC.

At the conclusion of the program, the participating municipalities can expect to have a completed municipal sewage system asset management plan and the tools (e.g., computerized asset management system) to implement the plan. There are no out-of-pocket costs to the municipalities participating in the pilot.
