City of Troy Awarded $10M Water Infrastructure Grant to Replace Major Water Transmission Line



Mayor Patrick Madden today announced the City of Troy has been awarded a $10 million grant from the New York State Environmental Facilities Corporation (EFC) through the Water Infrastructure Improvement Act and Intermunicipal Grant programs to fund the first phase of a major water line replacement project between the Tomhannock Reservoir and the city’s John P. Buckley Water Treatment Plant.
 
Mayor Madden said, “The replacement of aging water infrastructure lines is critical to protect the health and safety our community and region. With support and assistance of Governor Cuomo, New York State Environmental Facilities Corporation and Department of Health this important modernization project can move forward to secure a stronger future for our residents, families and businesses.”
 
In September 2018, the City submitted an application to New York State Environmental Facilities Corporation for phase one of the Transmission Line Replacement project. The existing water lines are over 100 years and were recommended for replacement. The project will install seven miles of new water transmission mains between the reservoir and the Water Treatment Plant to ensure future reliability of service and reduce vulnerability of the lines. The Water Treatment Plant provides over 21 million gallons of drinking water daily to over 135,000 customers in Troy and eight other communities in Albany, Rensselaer, and Saratoga counties.
 
The City was previously awarded approximately $3.2 million from EFC, including $1.8 million in grant funding and $1.4 million in zero-interest financing, to replace approximately 1 mile of water main which ruptured in January 2016. The project was completed in August 2017.
