You may pay for your permit by using Visa, MasterCard, and Discover credit & debit cards and E-Checks. By law the county is not allowed to pay the transaction processing fee (collected by the web service provider) therefore it must be paid by the user.  Credit cards will have a 2.50% fee, VISA debit cards have a $3.95 flat fee and electronic checks have a $1.75 flat fee.  Please be assured that every precaution has been taken to make your online transaction safe and secure.

In person payments by cash or check are accepted at the Environmental Health Department located at 107 Nott Terrace, Suite 300, Schenectady, NY 12308

 Office hours are Monday through Friday 9:00 am – 4:30 pm, except summer hours July/August 9:00 am – 3:30 pm.

The Schenectady County Environmental Health Department hopes that you find the online payment feature to be a convenient and easy means by which to pay for your pool, spa or beach permit.  Please contact us at 518-386-2818 or by email at  if you have any questions or concerns.
