New York water projects receive $78 million boost

January 19, 2024

The state of New York has allocated $78 million in state and federal funds for projects to improve water and wastewater facilities throughout the state, officials announced this week. The funds will support projects in New York City, the Finger Lakes, the Albany region and western and northern parts of the state.

“Improving our water infrastructure is essential for building safe and healthy New York communities,” Governor Hochul said. “This financial assistance makes all the difference in being able to provide safe drinking water to New Yorkers, protect our natural resources and ensure the projects are successful and affordable.”

The funds include financing through the Clean Water State Revolving Fund and Drinking Water State Revolving Fund, and grants from the State’s Water Infrastructure Improvement (WIIA) and Intermunicipal Grant (IMG) programs. Some of the funds are also available through the federal Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.  

The New York City Municipal Water Finance Authority will receive $50 million in financing to build a second conveyance tunnel from the Kensico Reservoir to the Catskill/Delaware Ultraviolet Water Treatment Facility in Eastview. The facility is the largest ultraviolet germicidal irradiation plant in the world and treats 2.2 billion gallons of water each day.

The Albany Municipal Water Finance Authority will receive almost $8 million in grants, plus $2.1 million in financing, for sewer overflow abatement projects in the cities of Troy, Albany and Cohoes. Additionally, the village of Endicott in Broome County will receive a $75,000 WIIA grant for collection system improvements.

In the western part of the state, the village of pro Portville will receive almost $4 million in grants and $1.6 million in financing for improvements to well sources and treatment buildings. Plans also include chlorine treatment and fluoridation treatment system improvements, replacing older and undersized watermains, valves and hydrants, and installing telemetry and water meters.

The city of Rochester in the Finger Lakes region will replace approximately 1,100 lead, lead-lined and galvanized pipes using a $3 million WIIA grant.
