(WETM) – Several towns throughout the Southern Tier will be getting tens of millions of dollars for water infrastructure improvement, Governor Kathy Hochul announced.
Hochul’s office announced another round of Water Infrastructure Improvement Grant, Intermunicipal Grant, Green Innovation Grant, and Engineering Planning Grant awards worth almost $300 million for towns and cities across New York State.
In the Southern Tier, several towns and counties will be getting a total of $20,255,922 in WIIA Grants and Engineering Planning Grants.
Hochul’s office said that the money is designed “to modernize the state’s aging water and sewer systems by providing the financial resources that municipalities need to undertake critical once-in-a-generation projects.” The programs aim to keep water clean, increase resilience to flooding, regionalize water systems, and protect public health.
