Sen. Brooks: Funds Awarded for Infrastructure Improvements in Greenville, Linesville, Perry Township, and Jackson Center

(HARRISBURG) July 23, 2021—Sen. Michele Brooks announced that Greenville, Linesville, Perry Township and Jackson Center have each received approval for funding for infrastructure projects from the Pennsylvania Infrastructure Investment Authority (PennVEST).

The four projects include the following:

  • Municipal Authority of the Borough of Greenville: a $4,059,160 grant for the replacement of water main along 10 streets, and 130 known or suspected lead service lines in the distribution system.  Seven hydrants containing lead would also be replaced. The system serves 2,454 customers.
  • Borough of Jackson Center: a $468,900 loan for design costs for the replacement of a deteriorating water treatment plant.
  • Perry Township: a $1,168,103 grant and a $37,997 loan for the installation of low-pressure sewer mains, 17 grinder pump units, a duplex grinder pump station, service lateral kits and a Community On-lot Disposal System. This grant augments a $3.95 million grant awarded in January for a wastewater treatment plant to serve the Hadley and Camp Perry areas. 
  • Linesville Borough: A $775,994 grant for the replacement of cast iron lines with plastic pipe.

“I was happy to advocate for these significant investments in our area, and it is my hope that this funding helps residents with the overall cost of these projects, which are costly for small towns,” Brooks said.  “As our infrastructure ages, being proactive ensures that residents have the resources they need, and businesses have the means to grow, enhancing opportunities for the entire region.  Working together and coordinating our efforts, we can maximize our impact.”
