New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman announced a $960,000 agreement with New York City on Thursday that will fund clean water projects in the Long Island Sound and the upper East River.

The agreement partially resolves penalties assessed against the city for allegedly falling behind schedule in upgrading nitrogen pollution controls at its Queens-based Tallman Island wastewater treatment plant. The schedule was part of a legal agreement between the state and New York City requiring upgrades to nitrogen controls at eight of its 14 wastewater treatment plants.
