State approves grants for projects at Holley and Lyndonville sewer plants
Lynn-Ette & Sons also awarded $148K in state funding
HOLLEY/LYNDONVILLE – The state has awarded grants to upgrade the sewer or wastewater treatment plants for both Holley and Lyndonville.
Gov. Kathy Hochul announced the awards earlier this month as part of $196 million for 488 projects identified through Round XI of the Regional Economic Development Council initiative.
The Village of Holley was awarded $783,016 to install ultraviolet effluent disinfection at the village’s wastewater treatment plant. This project will improve water quality by reducing pathogens in the plant’s discharge to East Branch Sandy Creek.
The Village of Lyndonville was approved for $483,460 to install an effluent disinfection system at the village’s wastewater treatment plant. This project will improve the quality of treated effluent entering the Johnson Creek.
Gov. Hochul also announced $148,050 to assist Lynn-Ette & Sons, a vegetable, produce and grain farm in Carlton. Lynn-Ette will invest in a new snap bean processing line and will add cold storage capacity to increase the amount of cabbage that can be stored for sale later into the season.
