Water quality protection grant approved for Genesee River project at Caneadea

Allegany County Soil and Water Conservation District is one of 86 recipients statewide today to be awarded a water quality protection project grant.

New York Gov. Kathy Hochul announced the $30,000 funding today for streambank/shoreline stabilization at Caneadea, among $110 million being disbursed overall.

The district will use the funds to complete a survey and engineering design plan to stabilize an eroding streambank in the Town of Caneadea, according to the state, with the project intended to reduce the erosion of nutrients into the Genesee River and protect infrastructure in the area.
