Daley announces state grant for area sewer renovations

CONSHOHOCKEN, March 30 – Commonwealth Financing Authority this week approved two PA Small Water and Sewer grants to improve and rehabilitate area sewer infrastructure, announced state Rep. Mary Jo Daley, D-Montgomery.

One $404,750 grant was awarded to Conshohocken Borough for lining nearly 3,000 feet of 20- and 22-inch sewers in the borough. Another $100,000 grant was awarded to Plymouth Township to replace 800 feet of 10-inch pipe with an 18-inch new sewer main pipe at the Plymouth Road Interceptor and install eight new manholes along the main.

“These improvements will help drastically extend the life of sewer infrastructure in the area, and the grant funding helps offset costs to users,” Daley said. “The state recognized a great opportunity to invest in Plymouth and Conshohocken residents and infrastructure.”

Under auspices of the Department of Community and Economic Development and backed by the CFA, the PA Small Water and Sewer grant program funds activities to assist with the construction, improvement, expansion, or rehabilitation or repair of a water supply or sanitary sewer system.

Eligible projects must have a total project cost between $30,000 and $500,000, and funding is available for municipalities and municipal authorities.
