U.S. Senator Charles Schumer is urging the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s rural development program to provide the city of Norwich with a more than $5 million water and waste disposal loan and grant.

The grant and loan would go toward the construction of a much needed water treatment plant in Norwich.

Schumer noted that the city will not be able to replace its aging water system without Federal funding from the USDA.

According to Norwich Mayor Joseph Maiurano, the current water treatment plant in Norwich is over 100 years old and hampering the city in attracting new businesses.

Schumer says the investment would help expand access to safe drinking water and improve the quality of life in the community.
