Governor Hochul Announces $83 Million for Critical Water Infrastructure Projects Statewide
Governor Kathy Hochul announced that the New York State Environmental Facilities Corporation Board of Directors has approved more than $83 million for drinking water and wastewater projects across New York State. The funding includes grants, interest-free financings, and low-cost financings that provide cost-effective solutions for critical infrastructure projects across the state that protect or improve water quality, including four drinking water projects in Nassau County that aim to address emerging contaminants at multiple facilities.
"Ensuring that the water New Yorkers drink is held to the highest standard of cleanliness and subjected to rigorous testing is a responsibility my administration takes incredibly seriously," Governor Hochul said. "This funding is part of an ongoing commitment from the state to ensure those standards are upheld and that our water infrastructure stays ahead of the curve on emerging contaminants."
