private corporation, partnership or individual, upon such terms and
conditions and for such consideration and for such term or duration not
to exceed twenty-five years, as may be agreed upon by said
administrative head, with the approval of the county legislature of the
county wherein such private entity is granted the right to construct,
operate, maintain, use, manage, occupy, lease, own, or any of them, all
or part of certain facilities it or the district owns or will own and to
carry on activities or furnish services, in whole or in part relative to
the manner of sewerage and wastewater treatment and collection for the
district on sites approved by the district which may either be owned by
the district, county or privately.

collection facilities, benefit the people of the county district or
provide for the improvement of their health and welfare or aid and
assist in the financing of the construction, operation or maintenance of
such facilities.
