Village Waste Water Department - Village of Rhinebeck
The waste water system for the village was built primarily for the densely populated business district and for some of the densely occupied residential units in the Village (Village Green, The Woods) as required by the New York State Health Department.
Some out-of-district customers, such as the Astor Gardens development and Stop and Shop, pay special fees in addition to the base charges. Waste water collection and processing is a special health protection and our facility is a 24/7 operation. Our operations are monitored by state and county departments of health and the New York Department of Environmental Conservation. We consistently stay in complete compliance with the requirements of the authorities. The waste water is a “fee for service” and the billing is done separately but in concurrence with the water billing.
