The city is making inroads on a project to expand water and sewer infrastructure to the former Diamond International paper mill and Standard Shade Roller industrial sites along the St. Lawrence River in hopes of making the properties more marketable to developers.
The water and sewer effort, referred to as St. Lawrence Shores Infrastructure, is being aided by money from two separate grants - a $30,000 consolidated funding application grant through the state Department of Environmental Conservation and a $250,000 grant through the Northern Border Regional Commission, according to Ogdensburg Planning and Development Director Andrea L. Smith.
Ms. Smith said the city is using both funding sources for preliminary and final engineering reports that assess the existing water and wastewater systems in the area, and then to design a plan to expand those capabilities to accommodate future development.
