New York State is awarding nearly $30 million in grants for water infrastructure improvement projects throughout the Mohawk Valley, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced today.

The grants are being awarded to 21 different drinking water and wastewater infrastructure projects in Oneida, Herkimer, Otsego, Montgomery and Schoharie counties. The improvements will include upgrades and replacements for drinking water systems, filtration plants and water mains, and the construction or enhancement of wastewater treatment plants, pump stations and sewer systems.

The grants are being awarded through the $2.5 billion Clean Water Infrastructure Act of 2017, which includes a total of $255 million available to municipalities throughout New York State for critical water quality infrastructure projects.

According to Cuomo, the nearly $30 million for Mohawk Valley projects will leverage $91 million in total project costs and provide nearly $62 million in taxpayer savings. It’s expected to create 1,490 jobs throughout the region as well.

"This unprecedented investment continues New York's commitment to helping municipalities develop necessary infrastructure to protect our water resources," Cuomo said in a news release. "These investments are crucial to supporting the health and safety of our communities, and help lay the foundation for future growth and prosperity in every corner of this great state."
