New York is receiving $270 million in funding for drinking water infrastructure upgrades, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency announced Tuesday.

The money is part of the broader $6 billion federal infrastructure law approved last year as officials seek to upgrade the nation's water infrastructure needs.

“Every community deserves access to safe, clean drinking water,” said EPA Administrator Michael Regan. “Thanks to President Biden’s historic infrastructure investments in America, we have an unprecedented opportunity to revitalize America’s drinking water systems, support the Biden-Harris Administration’s goal of removing 100% of lead pipes across our country, and protect communities from PFAS pollution.”

The money includes more than $1 million for upgrade projects for three facilities at the Albany Water System as well as the Feura Bush Filtration Plant, the Pine Bush Pump Station and the Loudonville Reservoir.

“EPA is putting the funding where the priorities are by working with our state partners to deliver clean water to communities, protect public health, and advance environmental justice across New York State and the nation,” said U.S. EPA Regional Administrator Lisa F. Garcia. “This funding is part of the once-in-a-lifetime investments we are making to transform infrastructure under the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.”

In New York, voters recently approved a multi-billion-dollar bond act proposal meant to shore up environmental infrastructure around the state in the coming years, including water and sewer projects.
