The Central Square village in N.Y will receive $100,000 from the state to upgrades to its wastewater treatment plant and other developmental works.
An environmentally sound wastewater treatment operation is one of major factors for increasing well-being of the residents of a community, announced, Patty Ritchie, State Senator.
The money will be used to upgrade equipment at the municipality’s wastewater treatment plant and also will go towards making improvements to sidewalks near the Central Square school district to increase safety for students.
Recently, the village received $21,000 in CHIPS (Consolidated Local Street and Highway Improvement Program) funding, as well as $2,000 in extra aid to help its highway department.
New York City’s 14 waste water plants together treat 1.3 billion gallons of waste water daily.
DEP maintains and operates the City’s wastewater treatment system; however, its responsibilities extend far beyond the management of the plants.
