Sewer Inspections Now Required

Effective immediately: The Town of Seneca Falls through combination of the old “Village” and “Town” of Seneca Falls Codes has created one uniform code, applicable to all residents. Inflow / Infiltration Inspections (Aka Sewer Inspections) are now required to be completed on all properties in Seneca Falls and all areas serviced by the public sewer of the Town. Procedure dictates (§230-64), that inspection be completed prior to the transfer of a property and to comply with code §230, Articles IV and VIII. The main purpose of the inspection requirement is to prevent stormwater from entering the wastewater sewer system that is ultimately treated at the Town’s wastewater treatment plant. This is required to ensure compliance with the NYS Department of Conservation.
