Adirondack communities get water, sewer grants

The Cuomo administration has announced more than $5 million in state grants for five Adirondack communities to help their upgrade water and sewer systems.

Grants for drinking water are $1 million for Chesterfield’s $8.4 million project and $1.3 million for North Elba’s $2.2 million project, according to the governor’s office.

Grants for sewer systems include almost $1.3 million for Crown Point’s  nearly $5.1 million project, $1.2 million for Saranac Lake’s $4.8 million project and $450,000 for Speculator’s $1.8 million project.

The announced awards across northern New York also included $4.35 million for Plattsburgh’s $17.4 million wastewater treatment plant upgrades. It was cited as a project in part addressing algae blooms, which have appeared on adjacent Lake Champlain.
