HARRISBURG – Crawford County received $500,000 in funding awarded by the Commonwealth Financing Authority (CFA) to support two water and sewer projects, according to Sen. Michele Brooks (R-50).
“Water and sewer projects are costly, and the burden to pay for them typically falls on customers in the form of system improvement charges that appear on their bills,” Brooks said. “These grants work to offset project costs and minimize the impact on residents of the 50th District.”
Meadville Area Water Authority will receive $300,000 to replace the Hillcrest Water Storage Tank in the City of Meadville through the H2O PA program. Established by the General Assembly in 2008, it provides for single-year and multi-year grants for the construction of drinking water, sanitary sewer and storm sewer projects; the construction or renovation of flood control projects; and the repair or rehabilitation of high-hazard unsafe dams.
Saegertown Area Sewer Authority will receive $200,000 through CFA’s Small Water and Sewer (SWS) Program to rehabilitate the tanks and rotating biological contractor No. 3. at the Saegertown Waste Water Treatment Plant in Saegertown Borough.
The SWS Program provides grants for small water, sewer and storm water infrastructure projects. Municipalities and municipal authorities that own and maintain a public water supply, sanitary sewer or storm water system are eligible to apply as long as their projects exceed a total cost of $30,000.
