Mission Statement

The Cayuga County Water and Sewer Authority (CCWSA) is a governmental agency constituting a public benefit corporation. Its purpose is to serve the people of the County. The Authority ensures the health and welfare of the County by providing and protecting the water and wastewater services to the County district.

Membership Opportunities

Positions on the Board of Directors for the CCWSA become available periodically and we are always interested in individuals who are willing to serve. 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. Board members are typically appointed for three-year terms unless filling a position that has been vacated in mid-term. Board members serve without compensation.

If you are interested in being notified of future opportunities please contact Jeanine Wilson, Director, at CCWSA or send a letter of interest with your resume.
