ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – New York State took steps on Monday to ensure clean drinking water remains a priority for its residents.
More than $20 million was handed out across the state to replace old lead pipes. In the Capital Region, Albany, Schenectady and Troy received over $516,000.
The awards fulfill a key component of the state’s Clean Water Infrastructure Act, which Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed earlier this year.
