Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo called for a $2 billion investment in water infrastructure across New York State during his State of the State address today in Westchester County. The Clean Water Infrastructure Act of 2017 would help communities upgrade aging drinking water and wastewater infrastructure. “Investing in water infrastructure is critical to fostering growth in our communities and our state,” Cuomo said. He added: “This investment will rebuild and improve our regional infrastructure, while supporting a stronger, healthier New York for generations to come.” Specific locations in the state where the money would be spent were not revealed.
