Construction has begun on the first water infrastructure project funded through the Clean Water, Air and Green Jobs Environmental Bond Act of 2022, and it’s taking place in the village of Lyons.

The wastewater treatment plant will be upgraded to help improve local water quality for recreational activities there. Lyons is installing a new ultraviolet disinfection system at the plant. 

“The Environmental Bond Act is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to fund a project that will protect clean water and the health of New Yorkers,” Gov. Kathy Hochul said. “We are making generational investments in New York’s future and reassuring communities across the state that your kids, grandkids, and great-grandkids will always have access to clean and safe water.”

There’s a website that tracks progress on these projects, environmentalbondact.ny.gov.

“This project is incredibly important to the Town of Lyons — we need clean water, clean air and green jobs. Our project is on track and on budget and we look forward to completing it quickly. We thank Governor Hochul and the New York State Environmental Facilities Corporation for funding this important project and helping us get it underway,” Lyons Town Supervisor James Brady said.
