Wallkill town receives state water improvement grants

TOWN OF WALLKILL – The Town of Wallkill has received two grants totaling $5 million through the state’s Water Infrastructure Improvement Act and Intermunicipal Grant Program.

Just under $3 million will fund improvements at the town’s wastewater treatment plant at 52 Golf Links Road. Built in 1989, the plant treats four million gallons per day. Improvements will be made to the return activated sludge pumps and the clarifiers due to their age and use.

Just over $2 million will be used to fund sewage pump station and sewer infrastructure improvements in Washington Heights, Scotchtown and Mechanicstown neighborhoods.

“These grant monies will allow the town to continue to maintain and improve its water and sewer infrastructure, which has been the backbone of economic development in our town over the past 30 years,” said Town Public Works Commissioner Louis Ingrassia, Jr.
