Kavulich announces sewage grant for Clarks Summit

 

HARRISBURG, Dec. 22– State Rep. Sid Michaels Kavulich announced that the state Department of Environmental Protection has awarded a grant to Clarks Summit Borough, Lackawanna County, through its Sewage Facilities Enforcement Grant Program.

 

The $395 grant will be used to reimburse 50 percent of the sanitary committee’s eligible expenses for performing the sewage enforcement provisions of Act 537 of 1966, the Pennsylvania Sewage Facilities Act.

The Sewage Facilities Act requires local agencies to administer a permitting program for the installation of septic systems. The purpose of the program is to establish uniform standards to prevent outbreaks of public health and environmental problems from substandard or malfunctioning septic systems. Properly functioning septic systems treat, distribute and dispose of sewage through a clean, economical and efficient process.
