PennVEST Awards $51.7 Million In Water Infrastructure Funding In 8 Counties

Gov. Tom Wolf Wednesday announced the investment of $51.7 million for ten drinking water, wastewater and nonpoint source projects across eight counties through the Pennsylvania Infrastructure Investment Authority.
“Today the PennVEST Board of Directors made another significant investment in much needed environmental improvement across the Commonwealth,” said Gov. Wolf. ”Abundant clean water is critical to the health of both our follow Pennsylvanians and the economy of this great Commonwealth.  Today is a bright day for both our people and our businesses as we strive for a better Pennsylvania for us and for generations to come.”
Of the $51.7 million, $31.0 million is allocated for low-interest loans and $20.7 million is awarded through grants.
The funding comes from a combination of state funds approved by voters, federal grants to PennVEST from the Environmental Protection Agency and recycled loan repayments from previous PennVEST funding awards.
Funds for the projects are disbursed after bills for work are paid and receipts are submitted to PennVEST.
A list of projects funded is available online.
