Introduction

The conservative cost estimate of repairing, replacing, and updating New York's municipal wastewater infrastructure is 36.2 billion over the next 20 years. In the past, the federal and state governments have provided significant funding for infrastructure repair and replacement. This is not true today. In the 1990s, the federal grants program shifted to a low-interest loan program, making it harder for many communities to address their infrastructure needs. New York voters approved the 1996 Clean Water/Clean Air Bond Act (CW/CA BA) which provided funding for wastewater infrastructure in certain areas, but these funds have been fully obligated. To date, New York State has invested over 11 billion in wastewater infrastructure.
