State pitches in with $250,000 for Falls water line project

The state will provide $250,000 to cover some of the costs of a water line project on 72nd Street aimed at alleviating a rash of frozen pipes.

The City of Niagara Falls late last year implemented a construction project to replace about 3,000 feet of water main in the area where the largest cluster of homes lost water service for weeks at a time over the past two winters.

State Sen. Robert G. Ortt’s office announced the funding allocation on Monday.

As the project was underway in early December, officials said the total cost of the project was estimated to be about $676,000.
