Village of Remsen is awarded grant money for Inflow and Infiltration Study
December 19, 2017

We are proud to announce that the following Grant Application has been approved :

# 75676
Oneida County 
Village of Remsen
Inflow and Infiltration Study:

The Village of Remsen will complete an
engineering report to identify sources of inflow
and infiltration (I/I) and provide rehabilitation
recommendations for reducing I/I in the system.
DEC EPG , $30,000

This study is to examine and document the amount of water that comes into our Waste Treatment Plant during rain storms or melting of snow or other natural events. This study and recommendations will also help the Village of Remsen to further prove that most of the northern Water issues can be contributed to the run off of water from large rain storms or massive snow melt.

We applied for 2 grants this year :

1.) Phase 2 Storm Mitigation Project , This grant was to generate and document the need and cost to implement the 2nd phase of a 3 phase Storm Mitigation project. Unfortunately, we were not approved for this study.

2.) Inflow and Infiltration: also known as (I and I study) This study is to document the amount of water that the Waste Treatment Plant needs to treat during large amounts of water run off.

We continue to build our case for the need of Grant money to properly mitigate our water run off which plagues Upper Main Street and John Street areas. We will update and be working with Engineers to complete the study and we will report their findings.
