HARRISBURG – Union Township in Washington County has been awarded a low-interest loan to upgrade it sanitary sewer lines, according to Rep. Mike Puskaric (R-Allegheny/Washington).
The Pennsylvania Infrastructure Investment Authority (PENNVEST) loan of $593,148 will be used to install 2,600 feet of an eight-inch gravity sewer line, 16 manholes, and lateral services to extend sanitary sewers along Library Road and Overlook Street in order to provide sewage services to 26 households in Union Township.
“This is good news for our area and will help to improve the quality of our local waterways,” said Puskaric. “Pennsylvania’s sewage systems are continually needing to be expanded and improved to keep up with new construction, and this grant will go a long way in meeting that goal. I am pleased that the state is offering some financial assistance.”
Since its inception in 1988, PENNVEST has served communities and citizens by funding sewer, storm water and drinking water projects across the Commonwealth. These projects not only contribute to improving Pennsylvania’s environment and the health of its people but also provide opportunities for economic growth and jobs for Pennsylvania workers.
