Canandaigua Waste Water Treatment Plant

In class the other day Professor Magee mentioned that the waste water treatment plant in Geneva will not accept any leachate from Seneca Meadows landfill. Instead it was trucked up to Canandaigua's waste water treatment plant. I was surprised to hear that Canandaigua would accept leachate that Geneva would not. Canandaigua is very protective of their lake, it didn't make any sense until he said the "treated" water is pumped into a creek that takes it up to Lake Ontario. I had never paid much attention to Canandaigua's waste water treatment plant and didn't even know where it was located. I took a short drive and happened to see a sign for it pretty quickly. The photo shows the back side of it from the parking lot behind Shepard Ford.
