Village of Lima Mayor Carl Luft was recently notified that the Village of Lima has been awarded two grants for clean water and infrastructure projects that will total over three million dollars.
The village received a grant for $2,398,200 towards the planned water infrastructure project slated to start in 2020. This project consists of repairing and painting the water tower, replacing the outdated water main on Rochester Street and updating the undersized water main on College Street between Genesee Street and the Lima School, and adding an emergency water supply line from the Avon water tower on West Main Road to Lima’s water main at the village pump house on West Main Road. The total cost of this project is estimated to be $3,997,000.
In addition, the Village of Lima received a grant of $860,000 towards a DEC-mandated upgrade to the waste water treatment plant. This upgrade will reduce the village’s ammonia levels as well as disinfect the water being discharged back into the environment. This project is expected to be completed by 2023 and cost a total of $3,400,000.
