After interviewing several banks, the NFWB
chose Bank On Buffalo.
"The principal goal of the project was to reduce inflow and infiltration, and the results have been promising, reducing chemical usage and pumping costs at the treatment plant, while also reducing wet-weather combined sewer overflow," said Richard Roll, NFWB
technical services director.
The accounting firm, Pronexus, LLC, based in Rochester, NY, evidently did not advise the NFWB
to put money in a bank account where they would get interest.
The statement said, "The root cause of such overflow occurrences--of which the DEC is well aware and has been working with the NFWB
on--is a direct result of outdated infrastructure and system design limitations that impact overall facility capacity during heavy volume periods.
Ottaviano, in his capacity as Town of Niagara attorney or NFWB
attorney we know not, said that TAM Ceramics owes upwards of a half-million dollars more to the NFWB
beyond what the County has already paid to the Town, according to the Buffalo News report.
