ROCHESTER, N.Y. — A few municipalities in the Finger Lakes region have been chosen to participate in a clean water infrastructure program.

New York State announced on Friday that the villages of Arcade, Le Roy, and Lima were chosen to participate.

The new program will help evaluate, monitor, protect, and plan upgrades for wastewater facilities. $10 million will be spread across the 27 participants. That money was made available by the U.S. Clean Water Infrastructure Act.

Gov. Kathy Hochul said: “The State’s Asset Management Program advances resources and expertise to help municipal leaders establish robust programs to maintain and upgrade essential wastewater infrastructure systems. My administration is committed to helping local communities across the state protect wastewater systems that are often a municipality’s single-most valuable asset. By evaluating flood resilience needs, these local asset management programs will help our communities mitigate the effects of climate change and better prepare for the future.”
