The New York State Environmental Facilities Corporation has approved more than $44 million for drinking water and wastewater projects across New York State - including a Boonville project, according to a release from Gov. Kathy Hochul’s office.
Locally, a clean water project has been funded for Boonville to the tune of $5,122,500 in short-term, interest-free financing and a $2,457,500 grant from the Clean Water State Revolving Fund. This will fund wastewater treatment plant 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,” 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.”
