Newark will receive $30K through grant to help with new DEC standards

The Village of Newark is getting more funds to help with local infrastructure expenditures.

The Village announced on Tuesday that they received a $30,000 grant from the Wastewater Infrastructure Engineering Planning Grant Program through the New York Clean Water State Revolving Fund.

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) has new requirements involving disinfection of sewage treatment plant effluent. The Village will use the grant funding, provided by the DEC and the Environmental Facilities Corporation (EFC), to evaluate the most efficient and cost-effective method for complying with the new mandate.

Mayor Jonathan Taylor shared his excitement for this latest round of grant funding for the Village. “I am delighted that the Village of Newark received this grant,” he said. “The completed engineering report will help the Village determine the best course of action moving forward in order to meet the new requirement.”
