White Township was awarded a $250,000 H20 PA – Water Supply, Sewer & Stormwater program grant today (August 17) by the Commonwealth Financing Authority (CFA), according to Senator Joe Pittman and Representative Jim Struzzi.
The township is planning to install about 12,000 feet of sewer lines, install 50 sanitary manholes and a sewage pump station, and provide service to 36 new customers. The township plans to receive bids for the project in September and construction should begin by the end of the year. The total project cost is estimated at $3,424,000.
“This project will not only address contamination issues created by the failure of on-lot sewage systems in the area, it will also be a major catalyst for future economic development efforts in the Airport Road area,” Senator Pittman said. “This will improve the quality of life for current residents and promote future economic growth and job creation for White Township and neighboring municipalities.”
“Faulty or unsanitary sewer systems present a risk not only to public health, but to the environment as well,” said Representative Struzzi. “These funds will go a long way in ensuring safe, efficient and effective sewage for the residents of White Township.”
The CFA was established as an independent agency of the Commonwealth to administer Pennsylvania’s economic stimulus packages. The CFA holds fiduciary responsibility over the funding of programs and investments in Pennsylvania’s economic growth.
