LOWVILLE, N.Y. (WWTI) — Phase 2 of the long-term project began on November 23 with a ceremonial groundbreaking kicking off construction.
The construction will be focused on improving the wastewater treatment plant located on East State Street in Lowville. The project consists of two upgrades to the two existing lagoons which hold wastewater after it is cycled through the system. This will include repairs, improvements, new liners, replacing the chlorine contact tanks, and building a new sodium storage building.
Not only will the project revamp the wastewater treatment facility but also provide additional construction jobs in the area. The project was made possible by $4.1 million in funding from New York State Empire Development and $1.28 million from the Environmental Facilities Corporation.
