Utility Reconstruction – Village of Corinth, NY
The Village of Corinth retained Laberge Group for a utility reconstruction project involving the upgrade and rehabilitation of a failing drinking water, storm, and sanitary sewer infrastructure along Pine Street- while maintaining the sewer/water service charges to the residents within the target established by the EFC. The project also included full reconstruction of the roadway and sidewalk system. Laberge Group began by identifying the exact capital improvements necessary, creating a strategic implementation plan, and generating a cost estimate for the comprehensive projects that included:
- sewer main rehabilitation on several streets, including Pine Street
- extensions to the storm sewer systems where required
- upgrade of a pump station
Corinth is a small village of only 2,500 people, of which 59% have a low to moderate income. This community could not afford
to rectify these costly improvements without assistance – nor could they afford to lose the significant economic opportunities
hindered by their failing water infrastructure.
After discovering the critical need for the Village to receive additional funds, Laberge Group was able to offer the Village of Corinth
extensive grant preparation, program delivery, and administration services. Of the nearly $37 million estimated costs for the
projects, Laberge Group assisted the Village in obtaining substantial funds from:
- Both the Drinking and Clean Water State Revolving Funds at 0% interest
- NYS Water Grants
- CDBG Funds
- DASNY Sanitary and Storm Sewer Funds
Laberge Group’s Infrastructure Improvement Project with the Village of Corinth represents our unique ability to service clients from concept to completion. Laberge Group was able to not only offer the engineering services necessary to complete the projects, but was also a trusted partner in identifying appropriate costs and securing critical funding to complete projects.
The former International Paper mill property is located along Pine Street. This 150-acre property is now for sale and offers tremendous potential for industrial development along this newly reconstructed roadway corridor.
