Governor Kathy Hochul has announced that the New York State Environmental Facilities Corporation Board of Directors approved $142 million in funding to enhance water infrastructure across New York State. This funding, part of the state’s efforts to address public health and environmental risks, will facilitate essential water and sewer projects aimed at removing contaminants and improving drinking water systems.

This financial assistance is fueled by the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and the state’s Water Infrastructure Improvement grant program, targeting projects in communities like Alexandria Bay, Newark, and Perry. These initiatives are set to significantly elevate water quality and safeguard public health in participating regions.


The approved projects will employ the $142 million to modernize infrastructure and promote sustainable water management practices across New York.

Here’s a look at some of the local projects:

Village of Clifton Springs, Ontario County – $2,798,102 short-term interest-free financing from the CWSRF, and a $407,134 WIIA grant for the design and construction of wastewater treatment plant improvements.

Village of Newark, Wayne County – $1,795,500 short-term interest-free financing and $724,185 grant from BIL, and a $3,591,000 WIIA grant for the replacement of the existing 4-million-gallon Allerton Hill Reservoir with a new 4-million-gallon above ground concrete storage tank.
