The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced over $256 million (€239 million) to New York from President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure through this year’s Clean Water State Revolving Fund (CWSRF).
The funding will support New York communities in upgrading essential water, wastewater and stormwater infrastructure that protects public health and treasured water bodies.
“President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law is delivering an unprecedented investment in America that will revitalise essential water and wastewater infrastructure across the country,” said EPA administrator Michael Regan.
“Not only will these funds expand access to clean water and safeguard the environment, but more underserved communities that have been left behind for far too long will be able to access them.”
“This major investment, awarded through the ground-breaking Bipartisan Infrastructure Law translates into replacing or repairing aging wastewater infrastructure, implementing water reuse and recycling, addressing stormwater and addressing the risks from emerging contaminants,” said EPA Regional Administrator Lisa Garcia.
“ EPA is committed to getting these critical water resources to underserved and disadvantaged communities.”
Governor Kathy Hochul said: “Thanks to the Biden-Harris administration and our Congressional delegation, Bipartisan Infrastructure Law funding is already creating jobs and helping communities upgrade crucial water infrastructure.
“I applaud this new and significant investment of more than $256 million (€239 million) that will bolster the record investments we are making in clean water, particularly in disadvantaged communities, to improve our health, environment and economy.”
