Washington, D.C. - Congresswoman Elise Stefanik announced that she secured $2 million in funding for a Water Treatment Improvement Project in the Village of Rouses Point.

“I am proud to announce that I secured $2 million for a Water Treatment Improvement project in the Village of Rouses Point through this year’s appropriations process. This funding will be used to improve the Village’s water treatment plant which currently requires near constant operator attention and limits drinking water quality throughout the community,said Congresswoman Elise Stefanik.

"These funds will help quite significantly with our construction of our new Water Plant. The village is currently having issues locating parts for our existing water plant due to its age. The estimated projected cost is $11,000,000. With your help and the Environmental Protection Agency this will ensure the village residents, commercial and industrial users will have access to clean, safe, and reliable water. Thank you again for your highly valuable support in this project,” said Village Clerk and Administrator Christopher Latremore. 

“I'd like to personally thank Congresswoman Stefanik for her efforts in helping to obtain this vital federal grant for the Village of Rouses Point. Her leadership in this matter is truly appreciated,” said Calvin Castine, Clinton County Legislator, Area 1.
