The Village Board has committed to continued improvements to the collection system and the treatment facility through grants and other revenues.  Some of the recent projects and improvements in the last few years included upgrades or replacement of three (3) pump stations and the addition of a ninth one to prevent sewage flowing into the canal during high flows.

The plant is currently undergoing a $23,000,000 upgrade and expansion.  This will include changing where the plant discharges from Garnargua Creek to the NYS Barge Canal. It also will include a new Influent Building, additional treatment tanks and a new sludge composite building.  These improvements will allow the plant to meet the needs of the village residents for many years to come.
