Donatucci announces $423K water and sewer grant

PHILADELPHIA, August 18 State Rep. Maria Donatucci, D-Phila./Delaware, today announced critical drinking water and sewer infrastructure projects in her legislative district will receive state funding to support their operations.

According to Donatucci, a total of $423,004 in state funds was awarded to Colwyn Borough through the Commonwealth Financing Authority’s H2O PA and Small Water and Sewer grant programs.

“These grant funds are critical to sustaining and constructing essential infrastructure for residents of our district,” Donatucci said. “These funds will go a long way in ensuring safe drinking water, sustainable water and sewer infrastructure, and help our district prepare for natural emergencies.”                                                                                        

The H20 PA grant program is meant for single-year and multi-year grants for the construction of drinking water, sanitary sewer and storm sewer projects; the construction or renovation of flood control projects; and the repair or rehabilitation of high-hazard unsafe dams.

The Small Water and Sewer grants are for small water, sewer, storm sewer, and flood control infrastructure projects. Both grant programs are administered by the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development. For more information about these programs, visit https://dced.pa.gov/.
