Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and Nassau County today announced a significant milestone in New York's plan to improve the water quality of Long Island's Western Bays. The Nassau County Legislature has approved a $408 million bond resolution to help fund the Bay Park Conveyance Project, which builds on the $830 million state and federal investment to rebuild the Bay Park Sewage Treatment Plant and advance the Conveyance Project. This comprehensive plan will stop the discharge of an estimated 19 billion gallons of treated wastewater into the Western Bays each year, helping protect and rejuvenate marshlands that, in turn, help protect coastal communities from storm damage.
