Water Issues for Some Residents
Some Seneca Falls residents are experiencing issues due to some “flushing” of the system. Issues such as cloudy or whitish colored water, which is air in the system trying to make its way out. Another issue maybe yellowish/orange or brownish/orange colored water; this normal everyday sediment in the system, and will not harm you. Please avoid using the hot water if you are experiencing cloudy water. Drawing the cloudy water into your hot water tank will prolong the issue. Allow the “cold” water to run in one location for a short period of time to remove it from your system. The Town of Seneca Falls apologizes for the inconvenience and is working diligently to fully resolve these issues. The Town also appreciates the cooperation of all those effected. You may call the Water Department at 315-568-6211 or Seneca County Health Department at 315-539-1945.

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. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the Water and Sewer Codes, please contact the Water Department at (315)568-6211. All Code questions can be research at www.generalcode.com or you can contact the Zoning & Code Enforcement Officer at (315)568-8013 for information.
