The Livingston County Water and Sewer Authority is a public benefit corporation established in 1995 by an act of the State Legislature. The Authority currently serves over 7,000 water and sewer customers in the Village of Livonia and portions of the Towns of Avon, Caledonia, Conesus, Geneseo, Groveland, Leicester, Livonia, Mount Morris, and Sparta. We currently operate and maintain two wastewater treatment plants, approximately 50 miles of sanitary sewer pipe, 12 water towers and approximately 75 miles of water pipe.
The Lakeville Wastewater Treatment Plant is permitted for 1.27 million gallons per day (MGD) that serves portions of Conesus Lake, Lakeville, Livonia and Hemlock. We are currently in the process of completing a $9.8 million capital improvement project that will address the need to reduce phosphorus levels, improve disinfection process and upgrade and improve the overall efficiency of the plant. The Groveland Station Wastewater Treatment Plant is permitted for .65 MGD and serves portions of the Town of Groveland and West Sparta.
The Authority is also responsible for the operation and maintenance of the flood gates in Conesus Creek at the outlet of Conesus Lake. This is accomplished through an agreement between the Authority and the Conesus Lake Compact (Towns of Conesus, Geneseo, Groveland, and Livonia).
The Authority is currently staffed by 13 full-time employees, and the 2022 approved budget is $3.6 million.
