Delloso announces $1.77 million in state funding for local water projects

RIDLEY PARK, Dec. 20 – Following advocacy from state Rep. Dave Delloso, D-Delaware, the Commonwealth Financing Authority this week awarded funds from the American Rescue Plan Act to support seven projects that benefit the public in the 162nd Legislative District.

 “Maintaining the infrastructure that gives us access to clean water and helps prevent flooding is always a sound investment of state dollars,” Delloso said. “I’m glad to see our local townships and boroughs receive this financial relief from the commonwealth to support their public health and safety efforts.”

The grants come from two different categories of ARPA funding:

H2O PA - Water Supply, Sanitary Sewer and Storm Water Program:

  • Ridley Township
    • $603,750 for a sanitary sewer system inflow/infiltration abatement project in the Crum Lynne area.

Small Water and Sewer Program:

  • Darby Township
    • $165,538 for rehabilitation of 23 manholes in township roads.
  • Folcroft Borough
    • $350,000 to clean and televise sanitary sewer lines.
  • Norwood Borough
    • $200,000 for rehabilitation of 23 manholes in borough roads.
    • $200,000 to upgrade the antiquated stormwater system near Muckinipattis Creek. 
  • Ridley Township
    • $100,000 for stormwater system improvements.
  • Rutledge Borough
    • $150,000 to rehabilitate its storm sewer system.

Established in 2004 as an agency of the PA Department of Community and Economic Development, CFA administers Pennsylvania’s economic stimulus packages.
