Waste Water Treatment Plant

​The department of Public Works is responsible for ensuring that village residents have access to clean water and for the disposal of waste water at the treatment plant located on Ryan Road.  Public Works is also responsible for the maintenance and cleaning of the water infrastructure throughout the village.

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) dictates what tests must be completed, how often, where samples are taken, and what limits are allowed to reach the Saranac River. 

Plant personnel maintain all the equipment that removes debris in the line. They maintain 60 acres of property with three aerated lagoons and add chemicals to remove phosphorous and other chemicals used to remove pathogens (germs) for fish and swimmers downstream.


Plant personnel also assist Public Works, as needed, flagging for road work and plowing snow and sanding streets during the winter months.

For any water or sewer problems or concerns, please call the Public Works Department at 492-7245
