Governor Cuomo announced over $20 million in grants to support 17 drinking water and wastewater infrastructure projects in Western New York.

Here are the Erie County municipalities receiving money and the estimated amount:

  • Town of Alden - $245,484
  • Village of Alden - $1,660,000
  • Town of Clarence - $417,500
  • Village of Depew - $425,000
  • Erie County Water Authority - $1,277,841
  • Town of North Collins - $417,000
  • City of Tonawanda - $4,824,250
  • Town of West Seneca - $1,637,832
  • Niagara Falls Water Board - $240,000

These grants are part of a $255 million statewide investment -- funded through the Water Infrastructure Improvement Act -- to upgrade and replace drinking water systems and enhancement of wastewater treatment plants, pumps, and sewer systems.

Reps say the grants will create 1,240 jobs across the Western New York region.
