Clarkstown Receives $623,000 Grant for Sewer Upgrades

(New City, NY) – Supervisor George Hoehmann today announced the Town of Clarkstown has received a $623,000 grant from New York State to replace three sewer pump stations in the town.

Clarkstown will replace three pump stations located on Foxwood Drive in West Nyack, Western Highway in West Nyack, and Rinee Road in Nanuet. The stations are expected to be constructed in the spring of 2018 and service hundreds of residents in West Nyack and Nanuet.

“This grant will help offset the burden from the hardworking Clarkstown taxpayers while ensuring the health and safety of our residents,” said Supervisor George Hoehmann. “I am thankful to the State for this award and look forward to continuing to improve our system so that Clarkstown remains a great place to live, work and raise a family.”

The three sewer pump stations are outdated and technologically antiquated. The replacement project work will replace electric panels, pumping machinery, and piping within the structures. The project will reduce maintenance issues, reduce infiltration/inflow of extraneous sources to the collection system, and increase the efficiency of the pumping stations.

The award was part of a $255 million statewide investment, funded through New York’s Water Infrastructure Improvement Act, and will offset the $2 Million total project cost for the upgrades.
