H2O Grant Secured for East Penn Township

HARRISBURG – The first round of PA H2O funding for critical water and sewer projects and other infrastructure needs across Pennsylvania was recently announced, according to State Senator David G. Argall (R-29) and Speaker of the House of Representatives Keith R. McCall (D-122).

“We all take it for granted that when we turn on the tap clean, safe water will come out and what goes down the drain will be handled safely, but it takes a lot of hard work by a lot of dedicated people to make that possible,” McCall said. “I was proud to stand with Senator Argall to bring these dollars home, and I know this funding will help East Penn Township handle wastewater safely and efficiently while helping to prevent rate hikes.”

“Without financial assistance from the Commonwealth, this improvement project would not be possible,” Argall explained. This funding is critical for helping protect the health and safety of East Penn Township residents.

The Commonwealth Financing Authority received 728 applications totaling $2.6 billion in funding requests, and the board approved $500 million in projects. East Penn Township has been awarded $36,000 for construction of sewer lines and connection to the existing sewage treatment plant located in Bowmanstown Borough.

To be eligible for funding, a project must be owned by a municipality or authority, and must include local matching funds. The Commonwealth Financing Authority will evaluate applications, with the Department of Environmental Protection and the Pennsylvania Infrastructure Investment Authority providing technical review and assistance.
