DiNapoli Signs Off on Saratoga Sewer Expansion For AMD Plant
Citing huge potential economic benefits to the capital region and North Country, state Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli today granted permission to the Saratoga County Board of Supervisors to expand Sewer District 1. The $54 million project is needed to accommodate future commercial and residential growth in the county, including the planned Luther Forest Technology Campus and the Advanced Micro Devices' (AMD) microchip plant.
“Saratoga County is one of the most economically dynamic regions in upstate New York,” said DiNapoli. “Keeping the infrastructure strong will keep the region’s economy strong. The AMD plant holds great promise for job growth and increased economic prosperity. And the expanded district will help ensure Saratoga County has capacity for AMD and beyond.”
By law such an expansion requires approval of the state Comptroller’s Office. As part of that approval, the Comptroller must determine that the project does not place an undue burden on the community.
