Sewer Use Law

Chemung County administers its Municipal Sewer System as per the requirements of the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) and the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC). To accomplish this, the Chemung County Legislature and the Administrative Boards of the two Chemung County Sewer Districts have enacted the Chemung County Sewer Use Law. This law provides authority for the establishment of Rules and Regulations for the use of the municipal sewer systems of Chemung County. This law provides for the authority to establish the Enforcement Response Plan to assure compliance with the Local Law, as well as those regulations imposed by USEPA and NYSDEC.
