Wastewater Treatment in Kendall
State funding under the Lake Ontario Resiliency and Economic Development Initiative (REDI) will cover 95 percent of the costs of connecting homes to a wastewater system in order to solve septic issues for lakeside residents by connecting them to a sanitary sewer and conveying wastewater to a treatment facility. Discussion of this project began following the flooding of 2017 along the lakeshores of Kendall/Hamlin.
This project is proposed to disconnect homes from the septic systems and connect them to a wastewater system. A privately owned facility (located at Troutburg in the Town of Kendall) will be turned over to the Town of Kendall, and approximately 125 residences in the towns of Hamlin and Kendall will be connected to the facility.
The project will solve the problems for lakeside residences with septic issues west of West Kendall Drive, including along Lomond Shore West, Edrose Shore, Knapp Shore, Thompson Drive, and near Lakeland Beach Road and Bald Eagle Drive in the Town of Kendall, plus residences near Beachwood Park Road in the Town of Hamlin. This project will connect these areas to a sanitary sewer and convey wastewater to a treatment facility.
This sewer project is the single largest project the Town of Kendall has ever undertaken and there are many entities involved in this project with many approvals needed. At present, the Town Board is waiting for Monroe County to send us an agreement to use their treatment facility. Once received and if we concur, then the Monroe County Legislature will need to approve it as well. The Town Board will then have a public hearing to address questions and provide valuable information. This will be some time in the fall depending on when we can move forward with Monroe County. As the project moves forward, the Town will continue to update the public on this website.
