As a result of a successful grant application made to the Northern Chautauqua Community Foundation, Chadwick Bay will receive $10,000 in funding to be used as a portion of the local match funds needed in order to receive the $150,000 grant awarded by the Appalachian Regional Commission program administered locally by Southern Tier West. The grant funds will be used for engineering costs for the development of the regional water system implementation plan.
Ongoing efforts to secure additional funding for the implementation plan in development by Clark Patterson Lee are being coordinated by Brennan Group Consulting and CBRDC Executive Director Kathy Tampio.
Clark Patterson Lee has been meeting with water system operators in all the communities in northern Chautauqua County from Ripley to Hanover. Meetings have also been held with local businesses who are our region's largest water users, including Nestle Purina, Cott and Carriage House. Plans are underway to set up meetings with SUNY Fredonia, Fieldbrook Foods and the Lake Erie Regional Health system.
