Release Date: October 06, 2017

Tomorrow is Hartsdale Day. Lots of  fun activities for your entire family from 10 AM to 4 PM. East Hartsdale Avenue will not be closed. Auxiliary Police Officers will be there to assist with stopping traffic at crosswalks and at Station Plaza. All metered parking fees will be suspended (free parking) on the road and in Site A. 

 

 The Town of Greenburgh Consolidated Water District submitted 5 projects for various water main infrastructure projects as part of the New York State Water Infrastructure Act of 2017.  We are pleased to receive notice from the State that three of our applications, worth a total of $11,946,200 were accepted and granted an award of $4,778,480.  As noted below in the press release from Governor Andrew Cuomo, Greenurgh received one of the largest grants in the mid Hudson valley region! The three projects are for cleaning and lining 56,100 feet or nearly 11 miles of water mains.  Included in each project is the installation of new fire hydrants and water control valves in the streets.

 

Cleaning and Lining Phase 1: Project Value:  $3,560,700 – 9,450 feet of water main in Knollwood Section and 7,550 feet in Greenville.

Cleaning and Lining Phase II: Project Value: $4,140,100 -  12,500 feet along Knollwood Road, and 6,500 feet in our north service area.

Cleaning and Lining Phase III: Project Value:$4,245,400 -  9,900 feet generally Taxter Road and 10,200 feet within the north east service area.

 

The Town recently approved the Phase 1 project and construction is anticipated in early spring of 2018 as soon as the cold weather breaks.  Phase II and III are in design now with construction anticipated in the early fall of 2018.

 

We are very pleased that the State has accepted these projects which, when implemented, will restore hydraulic capacity to almost 11 miles of water main.  This work improves reliability of the water mains, improves firefighting capacity and lessens incidents of discolored water.  We are very pleased that NYS is helping the town as we pursue major infrastructure initiatives.

GOVERNOR CUOMO ANNOUNCES $34 MILLION IN GRANTS FOR VITAL WATER INFRASTRUCTURE IMPROVEMENTS IN THE MID-HUDSON VALLEY

 

Record Levels of Funding Will Leverage $123 Million in Water Quality Investments, Providing $64 Million in Taxpayer Savings

 

Investment Will Support the Creation of 2,000 New Jobs in the Mid-Hudson Valley

 

 

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced nearly $34 million in grants to support 24 essential drinking water and wastewater infrastructure projects in the Mid-Hudson Valley. These grants are part of a $255 million statewide investment, funded through New York's Water Infrastructure Improvement Act.

 

"This unprecedented investment continues New York's commitment to helping municipalities develop necessary infrastructure to protect our water resources,"Governor Cuomo said. "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."

 

Under the landmark $2.5 billion Clean Water Infrastructure Act of 2017, announced by Governor Cuomo in April, these grants are part of $255 million in funding available for municipalities statewide to support critical water quality infrastructure projects. The Act also made $30 million available for the new Intermunicipal Water Infrastructure Grants Program, which provides grant funds for two or more municipalities sharing water quality infrastructure.

 

In the Mid-Hudson Valley, nearly $34 million in grant funds will leverage $123 million in total project costs providing over $64 million in taxpayer savings. This investment will also create 2,000 jobs across the region. Since 2015, inclusive of this latest round of funding, communities in the Mid-Hudson Valley have received a total of $68 million in WIIA and IMG grant funds supporting $259 million in total project costs.

The projects announced today will strengthen the drinking water and wastewater infrastructure in the Mid-Hudson Valley in a number of ways including: upgrades and replacements for drinking water systems, filtration plants and water mains, as well as the construction or enhancement of wastewater treatment plants, pump stations, and sewer systems.

 

In addition to grants, EFC provides interest-free and low-interest loans to communities further enhancing the taxpayer savings related to the development of these projects. The grants announced today are expected to be supplemented with nearly $68 million in these low-cost loans.

 

New York State Environmental Facilities Corporation President and CEO Sabrina Ty said, "Governor Cuomo has been unwavering in his commitment to support municipalities as they tackle their water infrastructure needs in an affordable manner. EFC works with communities to provide a combination of grant funds and low-cost loans to finance their drinking water and wastewater infrastructure projects. This allows municipalities to undertake these projects at significant taxpayer savings."

 

New York State Department of Environmental Conservation Commissioner Basil Seggos said, "Governor Cuomo's historic investments in water infrastructure are providing municipalities across the state with the resources they need to upgrade their systems and safeguard community water supplies. As western New York continues its economic comeback, the Governor's transformative plan will put more New Yorkers to work strengthening our infrastructure's ability to meet emerging water challenges."

 

New York State Department of Health Commissioner Dr. Howard A. Zucker said,"Access to clean drinking water is a national public health issue that demands swift and decisive action. As cities and towns across the country face water infrastructure challenges, Governor Cuomo is putting the health of New York's citizens first with unprecedented investments in water treatment and delivery."

 

New York State leads the nation with the largest annual investment in water-quality infrastructure of any state. Since 2011, EFC has provided more than $11.5 billion in subsidized loans, grants and loan re-financings to local governments.
