New York Power Authority Makes Community Enhancement Payment to St. Lawrence Communities


MASSENA—The New York Power Authority today announced that it is making an additional Community Enhancement payment valued at more than $1 million to be shared among eight North Country local governments and school districts, including St. Lawrence County, the Towns of Massena, Louisville and Waddington, the Villages of Massena and Waddington, as well as the Massena and Madrid-Waddington school districts. The additional payment is tied to a provision in the 2003 St. Lawrence-FDR Power Project Relicensing Agreement that triggers payouts to local community stakeholders during years when generation is exceptionally high at the Project, owned and operated by NYPA. This payment is supplemental to Community Enhancement payments of $2 million made annually to the same beneficiary communities.
