The Village of Bath is set to benefit from over $38 million in federal financing aimed at enhancing its water and sewer systems.
Governor Hochul’s Office confirmed that Bath will receive around $25 million from a total of over $226 million allotted to ten municipalities in the state for water infrastructure projects.
The remaining $13 million designated for Bath is derived from grants. This substantial financial boost is geared towards supporting the village’s endeavor to modernize its wastewater treatment plant, aiming to cut down on pollution affecting the Chesapeake Bay Watershed and prepare the facility for potential expansions in the future.
Governor Hochul underscored the significance of these investments, stating they set the stage for regional growth while ensuring environmental protection.
The funding, sourced from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL), is part of a more extensive initiative, which earmarked over $50 billion to uplift the nation’s drinking water, wastewater, and stormwater infrastructures.
