ALBANY, N.Y. (WENY) – The New York Environmental Facilities Corporation has awarded $638 million in grants to various water projects across the state.

Governor Kathy Hochul says the projects across the state will protect public health and improve water quality.







The grants are projected to contributed over 35,000 jobs to New York’s economy and save taxpayers an estimated $1.4 billion.

“Modernizing our state’s water infrastructure is critical to ensuring every New Yorker has access to clean drinking water,” Governor Hochul said. “Protecting the public health of New Yorkers will always be a top priority for my administration and this funding is a testament to that commitment. We will continue working collaboratively with every level of government to empower localities with the funding they need to improve water quality statewide.”







In Western New York, the Buffalo Sewer Authority, Village of Franklinville and City of Lockport are among those receiving funding.
