$23 Million Awarded for Water, Sewer Projects in New York’s Southern Tier

New York Governor Andrew M. Cuomo has approved $23 million in grants to support 12 essential drinking water and wastewater infrastructure projects throughout the state’s Southern Tier, including upgrades and replacements for drinking water systems, filtration plants and water mains, as well as the construction or enhancement of wastewater treatment plants, pump stations, and sewer systems. These grants are part of a $255 million statewide investment, funded through the Water Infrastructure Improvement Act, as well as the new Intermunicipal Water Infrastructure Grants Program.

“This unprecedented investment continues New York’s commitment to helping municipalities develop necessary infrastructure to protect our water resources,” Governor Cuomo said. “These investments are crucial to supporting the health and safety of our communities, and help lay the foundation for future growth and prosperity in every corner of this great state.”

Under the $2.5 billion Clean Water Infrastructure Act of 2017, announced by Governor Cuomo in April, these grants are part of $255 million in funding available for municipalities statewide to support critical water quality infrastructure projects. The legislation also made $30 million available for the new Intermunicipal Water Infrastructure Grants Program, which provides grant funds for two or more municipalities sharing water quality infrastructure.

In New York’s Southern Tier, $23 million in grant funds will leverage $71 million in total project costs and provide nearly $43 million in taxpayer savings. This investment will also create 1,160 jobs across the region.
