Nelson, NY—Today, Congresswoman Claudia Tenney (NY-22) announced $200,000 in federal funding for drinking water infrastructure improvement for the Town of Nelson in Madison County. The funding is awarded through a grant allocated by the Northern Border Regional Commission (NBRC).

The grant will fund an improvement in drinking water infrastructure with a 16,500-foot extension to the public water main. In addition, a pump station and storage tank will be constructed to service a water district east of the Village of Cazenovia.

“This grant is an important step forward in improving our infrastructure and expanding water access for rural areas in the 22nd District. The grant will provide residents of western Madison County with much needed upgrades and improvements to their drinking water. The NBRC provides our communities with access to critical funding streams that are necessary to support vitally important infrastructure programs. For this reason, I have cosponsored H.R. 3288, the Northern Border Regional Commission Reauthorization Act of 2017. This bipartisan legislation reauthorizes the NBRC through 2023 so that it can continue to support our rural communities in need of assistance.” said Congresswoman Claudia Tenney.

“New York is fortunate to have a Congressional Delegation that is concerned about economic development and the future of rural America. Thanks to Congressional support, the NBRC is proud to support critical infrastructure projects throughout Upstate New York,” said Mark Scarano, Federal Co-Chair, Northern Border Regional Commission.
