Delloso announces $50,000 grant for storm water, Muckinipates Creek improvements

GLENOLDEN, Nov. 19 – State Rep. David Delloso, D-Delaware, today announced a $50,000 grant has been awarded to Glenolden Borough for a storm sewer pipe project.

Delloso says the funds will go to redirecting storm water into a bioswale and a 400-foot streambank in Glenolden Community Park. The project would improve the land and aquatic habitats along the Muckinipates Creek while also reconnecting the creek to the floodplain. 

“Glenolden Borough’s plan to improve the watershed in the area of the Glenolden Community Park is a terrific investment in keeping Pennsylvania’s wilderness beautiful,” Delloso said. “The Muckinipates Creek is a beautiful feature of the park and this project will help keep it that way.” 

The grant is being awarded through the Commonwealth Financing Authority’s Watershed Restoration Protection Program – part of the CFA Act 13 grant programs – which provides funding to projects aiming to improve water quality, greenways and recreational areas.
