With the devastating flooding that has destroyed areas all over the state of New York recently, officials are prioritizing what to do to upgrade the infrastructure in place.
Governor Kathy Hochul has voiced her support to upgrade culverts, transportation, and other things to help bolster a system that can no longer handle water as the climate changes.
This would create thousands of construction jobs as well.
Hochul pointed out that when the systems and damages are fixed from the flooding, they can’t just go back to the way they were, but need to be built better for the future.
While funding will be granted for disaster relief, more is needed to get the work done properly.
