LOUISVILLE – The Town of Louisville has secured a multi-million dollar loan and a $2 million grant for improvements to drinking water delivery infrastructure in Louisville and Norfolk.
The $7.275 million interest-free loan and a $2 million grant for a new distribution system, storage tank and system consolidation was approved and announced by the New York State Environmental Facilities Corp. (EFC).
This project will form the East Louisville Water District #3 in Louisville and the West Hatfield Water District in the Town of Norfolk, areas not currently served with public water.
Some existing public water systems (grocery, convenience store and a housing complex) will be consolidated as a part of this project.
The money will come from the New York State Drinking Water State Revolving Fund. Jointly administered by EFC and the state Department of Health, the revolving loan program provides subsidized loans to build new infrastructure and repair drinking water systems throughout the state.
