ALBANY, N.Y. -- Governor Cuomo announces over $5.5 million for the construction and repair of flood control systems in the Hudson Valley. Dam repairs are also outlined in the plan, which consists of a total of 15 projects.
It's all part of the governor's NY Works initiative, which is designed to reinvent economic development while creating jobs for New Yorkers.
Many Hudson Valley officials have spoken out in favor of Governor Cuomo's plan to address flood control, citing the damage sustained after last year's flooding.
Making the list of 15, the Alder Lake Dam in Ulster County has been prioritized as critical dam repair.
Also outlined in the governor's plan, flood control systems in Highland Mills in Orange County and Pleasant Valley in Dutchess County.
