Much-needed grant money to help Ogdensburg complete wastewater upgrade
Posted by news on 10/12/2017 4:18:00 AM.
Much-needed finanical relief is coming to Ogdensburg in the form of a grant totaling $5 million, which will go toward upgrading the wastewater treatment plant.


According to the Watertown Daily Times, the money is the max amount the grant can reach and it comes months after New York awarded the city a $20 million no-interest loan.
 
The overall financial aid will help cover the cost of the $35 million project.
 
Being awarded the extra $5 million is a boon for cash-strapped Ogdensburg, which couldn't afford the necessary repairs to the treatment plant without major tax increases.
