“You may have seen an announcement late last week from Governor Cuomo's office, the City of Norwich was awarded a grant from New York State DFS for the inflow/infiltration project to the tune of $824,313––that's the max grant,” said Carnrike.

Department of Public Works Superintendent Carl Ivarson said, “This is called the I and I to correct the infrastructure on the sewer. It does a couple things: it eliminates the water going down to the waste water treatment plant, which helps that immensely down there so you can take on additional customers; it eliminates I and I; it keeps the DEC from making you enter into a consent order; it gets this work done, and, 800,000 some odd dollars is a pretty good grant.”

Open Forum

Joyce Church first addressed the council during open forum to discuss her concerns regarding the current state of Plymouth Street in Norwich.
