No End in Sight for Western Ramapo Sewer Project

A sewer project that’s been in the works in western Ramapo since the 1990s is still not complete and it’s not clear when it might get finished. The project was supposed to connect homes in western Ramapo to sewer service, but it ballooned in cost by the millions and has suffered setback after setback. Ramapo supervisor Michael Specht wants to get the project done soon, but it’s difficult to nail down when that could possibly happen…

The original approved cost of $72 million 19 years ago has grown to about $167 million. That’s according to the Journal News, which said much of the cost is being paid by Ramapo property owners already connected to the sewer system, typically about $500 a year.
