Former Ti trustee Joe Michalak was also honored.
"A lot of collaboration, a great deal of effort and years of persistence has made this possible," said state Sen. Betty Little. "I am pleased to have been helpful with some state funding through the shared services program, but I really want to commend Tom Morhouse and the local elected officials, including Bob Dedrick, for their work."
"We have also relied upon the help of the Ticonderoga Sewer Department staff, Tracy Smith and Sue Huestis, and on the guidance of Jason Denno at New York State's Environmental Facilities Corporation, which provided financing assistance," continued Morhouse.
He also praised Putnam Supervisor John LaPointe.
"It was great to see everyone working together, from state agency staff, to town supervisors Dedrick and LaPointe, to local residents. This successful project is a shining example of a grassroots effort among Black Point Road residents to band together as an association, get organized, and gain the attention of their governments with an environmental goal to protect a precious resource. It sets an example for Lake George and other communities across the nation," concluded Lender.
The project cost upwards of $6 million and will cost residents roughly $1,000 annually. A.P. Reale Construction installed the system over an 18-month period, and the engineering firm Clark Patterson Lee provided the engineering design and oversight.
