PennVEST Makes $269 Million Investment In 11 Water Infrastructure Projects In 10 Counties

On July 20, the
PA Infrastructure Investment Authority announced the award of $269 million in funding to 11 drinking water, wastewater, stormwater, and nonpoint source water pollution control projects in 10 counties.

The funding for these projects originates from a combination of state funds approved by voters, Growing Greener, Marcellus Legacy Fund supported by Act 13 drilling impact fees, federal grants to PennVEST from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and recycled loan repayments from previous PennVEST funding awards.

“The concerted effort to improve our nation’s infrastructure​ puts into focus the importance of investing in the many facets of our infrastructure, including water infrastructure,” said Gov. Wolf.  “Pennsylvanians have been leading the way in making responsible, reliable infrastructure improvements for years and this administration has been a proud partner to those communities. These investments will result in generational change to our clean water facilities and are representative of the many efforts of this administration to prioritize environmental stewardship and advancement.”

“With federal investments like the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act expected later this year, I am excited to see communities investing in their water systems now,” said Gov. Wolf.  “Federal investments, paired with the continued financial commitment of this commonwealth, are literally changing communities for the better every day.”
