Kosierowski announces $1.3 million in water and sewer grants for 114th District

LACKAWANNA, Aug. 17 – State water and sewer grants totaling $1.3 million have been awarded for several local projects, state Rep. Bridget M. Kosierowski, D-Lackawanna, announced today.

This funding means better economic development, cleaner water, the potential for less flooding,” Kosierowski said. “An investment in our water infrastructure is an important step forward to replace our aging water and sanitary systems to better ensure public health for all our people.”

Kosierowski said the projects include:

  • $200,000 to Clark Summit Borough to complete Urban Stream Restoration to an unmade tributary to Ackerly Creek.

  • $394,149 to Moosic Borough for sanitary sewer improvements to two sites. The proposed project will install two sanitary sewer lines at two sites where existing sewers were not properly installed at Church Street and Snyder Court.

  • $246,313 to Clark Summit Borough to replace storm water infrastructure on West Grove Street.

  • $400,000 to Greenfield Township to upgrade the wastewater treatment plant.

  • $70,153 to Jermyn Borough for a sewer line replacement project.

The Commonwealth Financing Authority was established in 2004 as an independent agency of the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development to administer grants and economic investments across Pennsylvania.
