Realty Subdivision Review

The goal of the Realty Subdivisions Review program is to ensure that the development of realty subdivisions meets current regulations regarding the water supply and sewage treatment.

Article 11, Title II of the Public Health Law requires that realty subdivisions that have five or more lots that are five acres or smaller in size must be approved by the Cayuga County Health Department before the subdivision map is filed in the Cayuga County Clerk’s office.

Plans must be submitted by a design professional, a professional engineer, or registered architect, and must include details showing water supply and sewage treatment systems.

Program Staff:
