New York is making $200 million in grant funding available to help communities address federally unregulated contaminants in their drinking water supplies. According to Governor Cuomo, the funding will provide advanced support and assistance for communities to combat emerging contaminants, as the state prepares to take the important step of setting enforceable drinking water standards for the emerging contaminants PFOA, PFOS, and 1,4-dioxane. The New York State Departments of Health and Environmental Conservation along with the Environmental Facilities Corporation will provide technical assistance to communities to help assess system needs and apply for grant funding.
