The Authority ensures the health and welfare of the County by providing and protecting the water and wastewater services to the County district.

We seek members who come from all geographic areas of Cayuga County and who are willing to make a commitment to attend a monthly Board meeting and periodic subcommittee meetings, and who will actively engage and participate in the business of the Authority. The Board seeks to maintain a diverse cross-section of individuals with various areas of experience and expertise. Candidates do not have to have a water or sewer background to be considered.

The CCWSA is governed by a nine-member board appointed by the Cayuga County Legislature based upon recommendations from the CCWSA Board of Directors.
