Schumer/Gillibrand: Cuba Gets $1 Mil

January 23, 2023

US Senators Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand have announced that there has been an award of $1,000,000 for the Village of Cuba Water System Improvement Project. “The Village of Cuba will use this funding to undertake a water system improvement project, including rehabilitation of water treatment infrastructure, water storage tank upgrades, water main replacement, and security and control upgrades. Addressing system deficiencies will ensure the Village is able to provide safe drinking water to the local community,” the joint press release from Schumer and Gillibrand states.

“On behalf of the Village of Cuba, I would like to express my sincere appreciation for the tireless work of Senator Schumer and Senator Gillibrand to secure funding to improve the Village’s water system. Now, with this one million dollar investment, we will be able to complete an integral part of the project that otherwise would have gone untouched and put undue stress on the main corridor of 100-year-old water infrastructure, likely damaging it further,” said Mayor Michele Miller, Village of Cuba. “This investment makes all the difference in being able to provide safe drinking water to our community and ensuring the project is successful.”
