Clean-water grants to fund salt sheds, green infrastructure

PLATTSBURGH — The Town of Keene Highway Department’s wells are contaminated with sodium and chlorides.

Thanks to a $695,856 grant from the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, though, the town is building a new salt-storage facility to replace the currently uncovered salt pile that caused the pollution.

New York state has awarded more than $9.2 million in new grants to Adirondack local governments such as Keene, as well as various organizations.
