- 2013 Orange County Sewer District
The following study uses the U.S. Census data along with numerous other documents to project population
and housing growth within the communities that use the Orange County Sewer District. What this study
shows is that Kiryas Joel's housing growth will require an additional 22.5 million gallons per day (mgpd) of
wastewater capacity by 2040 while the other communities in that district will require approximately 3.5
mgpd. The estimated costs of providing that capacity is $600 million and will be paid for by all of the
communities that are within that sewer district.
In addition, this study uses documents that were sent between the County and the DEC to show that the current
governance is ineffective at best and needs to be changed before we have an environmental disaster.
