The village of Heuvelton has received a $2 million state grant to improve its wastewater treatment facility.

In addition to the grant, the Environmental Facilities Corp. approved a $775,000 interest-free loan to the village.

The money will be used to repair or replace approximately 75 manholes and over 4,000 linear feet of pipe, install back-up power at two pumping stations, and replace old electrical infrastructure at the wastewater treatment plant.

The project, which is expected to begin this summer, will reduce the risk of inadequately treated wastewater discharges into the Oswegatchie River and ensure better and more consistent treatment of wastewater in the village. 

The grant and short-term interest-free loan for Heuvelton are available through New York's Clean Water State Revolving Fund (CWSRF).

EFC manages the largest State Revolving Fund for Clean Water and Drinking Water programs in the nation.
