Hanbidge announces $1.6 million in state funding for infrastructure projects

HARRISBURG, Dec. 20 – State Rep. Liz Hanbidge announced that she has helped secure funding of nearly $1.6 million through the Commonwealth Financing Authority for four water and sewer projects in her district.

“Water and sewer projects help us maintain our environment, mitigate flood damage and boost our local economy,” Hanbidge said. “I am pleased to see these worthy projects get funded.”

Under the H2O PA program, the North Wales Water Authority was awarded $500,000 to replace a water main between Broad Street and Valley Forge Road in Upper Gwynedd Township.

The North Wales Water Authority also was awarded $423,895 through the PA Small Water and Sewer grant program for manhole inflow and infiltration abatement in North Wales Borough.

Also, under the Small Water and Sewer grant, Lower Gwynedd Township receives $248,756 for a sewer upgrade and extension project and Upper Gwynedd Township will receive $421,231 for a storm sewer renovation project.

The H2O Grant program provides single-year and multi-year grants for the construction of drinking water, sanitary sewer and storm sewer projects; the construction or renovation of flood control projects; and the repair or rehabilitation of high-hazard unsafe dams.

The Small Water and Sewer program funds activities to assist with the construction, improvement, expansion, or rehabilitation or repair of a water supply system, sanitary sewer system, storm sewer system, or flood control projects.

Hanbidge represents the 61st Legislative District comprised of North Wales Borough; Lower Gwynedd, Upper Gwynedd, and Towamencin townships; and part of Whitpain township.
