  • Septic Requirements for NYCDEP Watershed

As of January 1, 2016, all programs funds have been expended.  The Town, along with Westchester County and the East of Hudson Corporation, will be working to obtain additional funding.  Please check back periodically for program updates. Thank you.

As required by the NYSDEC, on 4/12/2011, the Town of Cortlandt Town Board, at a public meeting, adopted Local Law #1-2011 requiring residents within the NYSDEP
watershed to have their septic tanks pumped out and the septic system inspected at least once every three (3) years to be in compliance (View Local Law #1)
