The proposed Wastewater Treatment System Improvements include the replacement of the emergency generator and relining and/or replacement of targeted collection system improvements for continued reduction of I/I to the Fonda-Fultonville Wastewater Treatment Facilities. Reserve sewer plant capacity limitations presently inhibit planned commercial and industrial growth and employment in the service areas.
