IRVING, N.Y. (AP) - The Seneca Indian Nation of New York has received a $600,000 federal grant to replace an inadequate wastewater treatment plant.

U.S. Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julian Castro said Monday that the funding will come through HUD’s Indian Community Development Block Grant Program.

The Senecas say their current wastewater treatment plant does not meet federal environmental standards. They say the new one will prevent sewage from backing up into homes and contaminating ground water wells.
