Allegany Waste Water Treatment Plant

Salamanca, NY

  • The Seneca Nation of Indians' development and growth occurring within the Allegany Territory gave rise to the need for an improved water and wastewater infrastructure to responsibly address environmental concerns. Faced with the limited capacity of the municipal sewage treatment system of the City of Salamanca Board of Public Utilities, SCMC constructed a new state of the art 20,000 SF facility to collect, convey and treat wastewater generated within the newly formed Allegany service area for the Seneca Nation of Indians. The service area includes the Seneca Allegany Casino and Hotel, the Seneca Allegany Administration Building, the Lionel R. John Health Center and the Jimersontown community. The $20 million facility is a full working wastewater treatment plant completed in July 2009, with a product testing laboratory, administrative offices and employee accommodations (i.e. lockers and break area).
