Local efforts to upgrade water and sewer systems will be supported by more than $8.6 million from Pennsylvania’s share of American Rescue Plan funds, State Senator Jim Brewster announced recently.

Brewster supported more than two dozen grant requests that will help maintain critical local infrastructure and provide relief to taxpayers in the 45th Senatorial District through the COVID-19 ARPA H2O PA program and the COVID-19 ARPA PA Small Water & Sewer program. In Pennsylvania, the grants are administered by the Commonwealth Financing Authority (CFA).

“Maintaining our aging water and sewer infrastructure projects is expensive and time consuming,” Senator Brewster said. “But this critical work must continue if we want clean streams and healthy drinking water for the generations to come. These projects make important upgrades to water and sewer systems, and I’m grateful to the local municipalities and authorities doing the hard work.”

The following municipalities and authorities in the south hills and mon valley areas will be recipients of some of these funds: 


  • West Mifflin Sanitary Sewer & Stormwater Authority – $1.5 million for grit removal equipment and operational improvements at the Thompson Run Sewage Treatment Plant;

COVID-19 ARPA PA Small Water & Sewer

  • Duquesne - $300,000 for a water system improvement project;
  • East McKeesport – $100,000 for Ice Plant Hill Groundwater and Stormwater Remediation project;
  • Castle Shannon – $425,000 for Hamilton Park Lining Improvements;
  • Clairton Municipal Authority – $180,439 for Golden Gate Storm Sewer Improvements Phase 2;
  • Elizabeth Township – $200,000 for Lovedale Pump Station Upgrades;
  • Homestead – $100,000 to construct a separate storm sewer system;
  • Liberty – $100,000 for the replacement of sanitary sewer;
