LEXINGTON – Owners of 47 homes and businesses, most of them near the Schoharie Creek in the hamlet of Lexington, don’t have to worry about maintaining their own septic systems any more. Each received a new septic tank where solids ware held for periodic removal. Liquid effluent is directed to a series of in-ground filters and then dispersed to the soil through several absorption beds.
Residential property owners will pay an annual maintenance fee of $100; the Town of Lexington will be responsible for operation and maintenance of the new system.
The project was approved by the voters in 2012 and construction began the following year.
The program was coordinated by the Catskill Watershed Corporation.
