“Today I am announcing a significant state investment in our critical water infrastructure for the 99th Assembly District and the Hudson Valley as a whole,” said Schmitt in a prepared statement. “Since my first day in office, I have helped lead the effort for state resources on water-related priorities for our communities and this critical state funding is paramount to our continued efforts on water quality, quantity, and protection. As Co-Chair of the Assembly Minority Water Quality Task Force, my efforts will continue with this major success and more to efforts to come from the state in partnership with local leaders.”
The grants include $14,785,201 to the Town of New Windsor for Sewer Plant Expansion, Outfall Relocation and Treatment Upgrades.
