Rep. Bud Cook (R-Washington/Fayette) recently announced that the Commonwealth Financing Authority (CFA) has awarded approximately $575,837 in Pennsylvania Small Water and Sewer Program grants to four municipalities in the 49th Legislative District.

“Properly maintained municipal sewer and water systems are critical to our region’s overall health and quality of life,” said Cook. “I applaud each of these grant recipients for coming up with a solid plan to bring these facilities into proper compliance by maximizing available dollars for the benefit of residents and ratepayers.”

District 49 municipalities and water authorities receiving these grants are as follows:

California Borough – $70,837 – California Borough plans to install eight sewer lines and five manholes to provide sewer access to three homes located on Highland Drive. Additionally, this $83,338 project will eliminate sewage seeping into the ground, along the rock ledge, and discharging into the yard at the bottom of the hill, which could potentially cause health issues.

Carroll Township Authority – $250,000 – Carroll Township Authority is under a corrective action plan to reduce sewer system overflows and is planning to upgrade the antiquated Grandview pump station. This $297,000 rehabilitation project will include the replacement of valves and pumps, and the installation of variable frequency drives, chambered flow meters and a bypass chamber.

Jefferson Township Water Authority – $42,500 – Jefferson Township Water Authority plans to install a waterline across the bridge over Redstone Creek.The water authority does not produce any water and the failure to replace this water line has prohibited access to outside water sources. This $50,000 project will connect existing lines allowing the authority to access water for purchase from the North Fayette County Municipal Authority.

Mid Mon Valley Pollution Control Authority – $212,500 – Mid Mon Valley Pollution Control Authority plans to complete pump station improvements in the boroughs of Roscoe and Stockdale.This $250,000 project will consist of the installation of three grinder pumps at station numbers 2, 3 and 4, thereby reducing downtime and the potential for basement flooding, sanitary sewer backups and manhole overflows.

The Pennsylvania Small Water and Sewer Program offers grants for small water and sewer infrastructure projects and can be used to assist with the construction, improvement, expansion, or rehabilitation or repair of a water supply or sanitary sewer system.
