HARTWICK – The town of Hartwick is set to receive $52,000 in federal funds, U.S. Sen. Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand announced Monday in a news release.

The $52,000 will be distributed through two U.S. Department of Agriculture grants, which will be used to conduct preliminary engineering reports along the Route 28 Corridor.

The first grant of $30,000 is from the USDA’s Special Evaluation Assistance for Rural Communities and Households (SEARCH) Program. It will be used to study alternative options for providing drinking water services for the properties that are located along the Route 28 Corridor, according to Schumer and Gillibrand.

The second grant of $22,000 is from the USDA’s Water and Waste Disposal Predevelopment Planning Grants Program, and it will be used to study alternative options for providing sewer services to the properties along the Route 28 Corridor.

The Route 28 Corridor is the main access route to Cooperstown, and according to Schumer and Gillibrand, residences and commercial properties in that area currently rely on private wells for drinking water and on individual septic systems for sewer services.

“This federal investment is good news for the town of Hartwick,” Schumer said in the news release. “These federal funds are a step in the right direction and will ultimately help Hartwick make critical investments in water infrastructure, boost economic development, and protect public health. I am proud to announce this federal investment and will continue to fight to make sure that rural communities have the tools they need to grow and prosper.”

“With this funding, Hartwick will have the resources it needs to plan out the best way to upgrade its water and sewer systems,” Gillibrand said in the release. “Clean water and reliable sewer systems are essential if we want more businesses to open up and create jobs in our communities. This funding is great news for residents and businesses along the Route 28 Corridor, and I will continue to fight for resources that help communities in New York thrive.”
