Legislator Drucker Applauds $6.4 Million State Grant for Plainview Water District

(PLAINVIEW, N.Y.) – Nassau County Legislator Arnold W. Drucker (D – Plainview) applauded New York State for its recent allocation of $6.4 million in grants to the Plainview Water District for infrastructure upgrades to protect drinking water from emerging contaminants.

Announced in early October, the two Water Infrastructure Investment Act (WIIA) grants will be applied toward the installation of new equipment at the Plainview Water District's Plants No. 3 and 4 for the treatment of emerging contaminants.  

“Harmful compounds like PFOS, PFAS and 1, 4-dioxane pose a major threat to the potability of Long Island’s drinking water supply, but the tremendous cost to complete the necessary improvements creates a major challenge for local water districts,” Legislator Drucker said. “This aid will equip the Plainview Water District to upgrade its systems and protect our water supply without passing the additional cost along to ratepayers. I thank New York State for their assistance with this crucial environmental initiative.”
