ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - More help is on the way for New York state’s aging water systems.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Thursday announced $11.5 million in grants and low-cost loans to help cities and towns upgrade and modernize drinking water and wastewater infrastructure.

The money will go to four different municipal governments in the form of grants and low-cost or zero-interest loans.

Cuomo, a Democrat, says investments in vital water projects will not only ensure safe, clean water supplies but also help local taxpayers who otherwise would foot the bill.

The communities receiving the money are the town of Liberty in Sullivan County, the village of Frankfort in Herkimer County, the city of Oneonta in Otsego County and the village of Harrisville in Lewis County.
