Septage Receiving Station
Livingston County’s Septage Receiving Station is located in Hartland Township along the US 23 corridor and is maintained and operated by the Department of Public Works (DPW) through the Livingston County Drain Commissioner’s office. In brief, this facility accepts waste from localized septic haulers who pump out domestic or non-domestic septic tanks by permit only. Livingston County ordinance prohibits land application of this waste.
The Livingston County Drain Commissioner sits on several boards that help manage lake improvement projects in Livingston County. These management boards could include projects for lake dredging, weed treatment and/or harvesting, evaluation and testing. The Boards oversee the project engineering firm and paying of bills and invoices.
Lake Levels and Dam Management
The Livingston County Drain Commissioner’s office has management of some of the dams in the County. Usually these structures and lake levels have mandated levels set from the courts to maintain. In circumstances of extreme drought or rain, the elevations may vary.
