A federal grant is headed to a State University of New York college in Westchester County for a green infrastructure project.

The $765,000 Environmental Protection Agency grant, announced by Democratic Congresswoman Nita Lowey, is for Purchase College to implement green practices when retrofitting campus pavement. Bio retention and porous pavement retrofits will be used to demonstrate how green infrastructure can be incorporated through the larger campus and improve water quality of Blind Brook, which flows into the Long Island Sound.
