Clarkstown Receives $10 Million Dollars for Sewer Upgrades

 

(New City) – Supervisor Alex Gromack is pleased to announce the Town of Clarkstown has reached an agreement with the Rockland County Sewer District who will pay the Town $10 million to refurbish eight existing pump stations located in Clarkstown and replace approximately 2500 feet of sewer main lines.

 

“This is great news for Clarkstown because without this agreement the Town would have to pay for the needed upgrades at our sewer pump stations and sewer main lines,” said Supervisor Gromack.  “This project will ensure that our sewer system is functioning at the highest level possible.”

 

The agreement allows the Town to oversee all the design, engineering, and construction of the sewer pump stations in Clarkstown and then be fully reimbursed by the Sewer District.  Sewer pump stations typically consist of three pumps that collect sewage and pump it from the station where it can continue with gravity flow to a trunk line.  All sewage is discharged directly to the Rockland County Sewer District trunk lines.

 

“In Clarkstown, we are always looking for ways to help lessen the burden on our taxpayers,” said Supervisor Gromack.  “We are grateful to the Sewer District for their cooperation in this agreement and funding assistance.”
