The New York City Department of Environmental Protection announced this morning that they will donate $1 million to a fund to help businesses in the city’s upstate watershed recover from the damage wreaked by recent flooding.
The money will go to the Catskill Watershed Corporation’s Catskill Fund for the Future, which has already set aside $5 million to help businesses make structural repairs. (For more information on the CWC’s flood relief fund, see our story from September 13, “CWC launches $5 million grant program for flood-damaged businesses.”)
