On December 1, 2004 the owners of CK Sanitary Systems, Inc abandoned the sewer system to the Town of Clifton Park and the Town of Malta. This action forced the Towns of Clifton Park and Malta to take over the operation and maintenance of the system. As with any transfer in ownership there will be some changes. Some of the more notable changes you will notice are as follows:

  • 2005 CK Bills distributed and collected by the Town of Clifton Park
  • Contact phone numbers may be different than what you used to call:
    • 24hour emergency numbers 518-877-6095 or pager 343-0662
    • Daytime phone (non-emergency) 518-348-7313
  • Saratoga County Sewer District #1 is graciously assisting us with 24 hour telephone dispatch.
  • New Sewer District Formations in Clifton Park and Malta in 2006
    • Sewer bills on your County property tax bill in 2006, saving mailing and billing costs.
    • Allows for possible future improvements to be bonded if necessary.

While this highlights some of the more significant changes, you may notice since the abandonment, the Town of Clifton Park and Malta are committed to a seamless transition and excellent customer service. If you have any questions or comments feel free to contact us at 518-348-7313 or email. 

Clifton Park Sewer is a complex network of almost 60 miles of pipe, 8 pump stations, and upwards of 550 grinder pumps. Most people never think twice about sewage and where it goes as long as it leaves there homes. Your sewer payments are necessary to provide for pump replacement and repairs, blockage removal, sewer line cleaning, sewer line replacement, electric bills, fuel (generators), etc. Throughout the year there will be a variety of emergencies, failures, and other unexpected issues that need to be dealt with promptly. 

No, CK Sanitary consists of infrastructure to transport waste from CK Sanitary customers to the Saratoga County Sewer District #1 System for processing. 

The Saratoga County Sewer District #1 wastewater treatment plant is located in Mechanicville, New York. 

There are 8 pump stations located throughout the town to pump sewage in areas where gravity transportation is not an option. Pump Stations are typically in low areas of the system and will pump sewage up hill to a gravity line and continues toward the wastewater treatment plant. These stations do not process sewage; however they must be functional 24 hours/day. These stations have alarm systems associated with them and in a couple situations a generator to provide back up power in the event of a power outage. You may see a red light flashing at a station once in a great while. This indicates an alarm has likely been transmitted via alarm dialer. 

  1. Call (518) 877-6095 at any time to let us know that there is a problem with your grinder pump.
  2. Cease water usage in your home; try to keep wastewater to a minimum to prevent an overflow of the well.
