Addison, Canisteo villages get millions to fund major water projects

A pair of Steuben County villages will get significant funding for water projects. A total of $44 million in project funding has been approved across New York.

The Village of Canisteo in Steuben County will receive $3,000,000 WIIA grant and $1,776,800 in short-term, market-rate financing for storage and distribution system upgrades.

The Village of Addison in Steuben County will receive $2,914,513 in long-term, interest-free financing for wastewater system improvements.

“One of the most important things to keeping a community strong and resilient is access to clean water. By ensuring our local partners have the resources they need to invest in critical water projects, we can bolster the public health in our state, and lay the foundation for growth and economic development,” Governor Hochul said. “This funding will help local governments make critical upgrades to key infrastructure, like wastewater collection systems, drinking water mains and water storage tanks, helping to protect water quality for New Yorkers for generations to come.”
