Sewer Department

The Village of Fishkill owns and maintains two separate sewer systems, one being the South Sewer Interceptor that serves the Village customers and Town of Fishkill customers south of the Fishkill Creek. The other system serves the areas of the Village north of the Fishkill Creek and discharges into the Village Wastewater Treatment Facility (WWTF) located on the south end of Jackson Street.

The South Sewer Interceptor was designed to deliver customer flow from the area south of the Fishkill Creek to the WWTF through a pumping station adjacent to the Rt.-9 Bridge, over the Fishkill Creek delivering the pumped sewage to the collection system on Elm Street where it flowed by gravity to the WWTF. In the early 1980’s, the Town of Fishkill Brinkerhoff WWTF reached its useful life and the Town Officials elected to install a sewer force main along the railroad right of way and pump its wastewater to the City of Beacon’s WWTF. The Village and Town subsequently entered into a municipal agreement that allowed Village wastewater to be pumped with the Town’s wastewater to the City of Beacon WWTP.
