Town of Seneca Falls Gets $6.8-Million for New Excess Flow Tank at Wastewater Treatment Plant


70-million dollars has been announced for communities across New York State for critical water infrastructure projects and some of that money is going to the Town of Seneca Falls.

Through clean water project funding, the town will receive $5,130,000  in short-term interest free financing and a $1,710,000 WIIA grant.

The money will go toward the planning, design, and construction of a new excess flow tank at the Seneca Falls Wastewater Treatment Plant.

“New York State is committed to providing communities with the resources needed to take action on critical water infrastructure projects that prevent exposure and health risks,” Governor Hochul said. “The grants and financings approved by the Environmental Facilities Corporation Board will leverage even greater local investments to help ensure our communities in every corner of New York have access to clean, safe water.”

New York State Department of Health Acting Commissioner Dr. James McDonald said, “Access to clean drinking water is a fundamental part of building and maintaining a healthy community. These investments announced today by Governor Hochul recognize that need and will ensure more New Yorkers have access to the highest quality drinking water possible.”
