Allegheny Township was awarded a $931,920 H20 PA – Water Supply, Sewer & Stormwater program grant today (August 17) by the Commonwealth Financing Authority (CFA), according to Senator Joe Pittman and Representative Lee James.
Allegheny Township is planning to upgrade the Allegheny Clarion Valley Business Park’s water supply treatment plant and wastewater treatment plant. Both facilities have been cited by the Department of Environmental Protection for deficiencies. The total project is estimated at $3,786,952.
“This project is vital on several levels, beyond the serious public health and safety issues created by the deteriorating systems at these current facilities, there is also an important economic component here as these facilities are essential to maintain the 600 jobs in the business park,” said Senator Pittman.
“This legislative grant comes at a crucial time for our Industrial Park,” said Representative James. “The businesses there are so important to western Pennsylvania and I know my colleagues all appreciate the announcement of support at this time”
The CFA was established as an independent agency of the Commonwealth to administer Pennsylvania’s economic stimulus packages. The CFA holds fiduciary responsibility over the funding of programs and investments in Pennsylvania’s economic growth.
