Rep. Bizzarro announces over $700K in water system improvement grants

ERIE, Aug. 17 – State Rep. Ryan Bizzarro today announced that McKean Township and Middleboro will receive state grants from the PA Small Water and Sewer program for construction, repairs and improvements to community wastewater sewage treatment plants.

“I strongly advocated for these investments that will help keep public water supplies safe. It’s always less expensive to invest in clean water treatment measures instead of cleaning up contamination. I am thrilled with the state’s investment in helping our local municipalities complete these projects and keep our water supplies clean,” said Bizzarro.

Projects funded by the PA Small Water and Sewer Program in Erie’s 3rd Legislative District as announced by the Commonwealth Financing Authority today include:

  • McKean Township- $425,000 to replace the Colonial Village Subdivision Sewage Treatment Plant.

  • Middleboro- $114,312 to extend a sanitary sewer line along N. Main St. in McKean Borough.

  • Middleboro - $163,801 to construct streambank protection measures for the wastewater treatment plant along Elk Creek in McKean Borough.

The Pennsylvania Small Water and Sewer Programs offers municipalities and municipal authorities grants for small water and sewer infrastructure projects. Grants can be used to assist with the construction, improvement, expansion, or rehabilitation or repair of a water supply or sanitary sewer system.
