Snyder, Bartolotta secure $1.9 million to rehabilitate East Dunkard Water Authority

(May 31, 2022)

DILLINER, May 31 – Nearly $2 million has been awarded to make fundamental upgrades to the East Dunkard Water Authority, state Rep. Pam Snyder, D-Greene/Fayette/Washington, and state Sen. Camera Bartolotta, R-Beaver/Washington/Greene, announced today. More than $1.9 million has been allocated to replace a main water line, pumps, gate valves, blow off valves and/or hydrants, and for the inspection and rehabilitation of the facility’s eight water storage tanks. “I’m relieved that there is a light at the end of the tunnel for customers of the East Dunkard Water Authority,” Snyder said. “After countless meetings with engineers, board members, and state and local officials over the years to address this egregious issue, I’m overjoyed that these folks will finally have reliable access to clean drinking water.” Snyder highlighted that the approximately 1,650 Greene County residents who rely on the EDWA to treat their drinking water have undergone two separate boil water advisories during this year. “We take it for granted when we turn on a faucet there will be clean, safe water coming out and that the wastewater will be taken away to be processed, but the fact is there are a lot of people who work really hard to make it all happen,” Bartolotta said. “Working together with my colleague, Representative Snyder, to help deliver these funds is part of our collective goal to Read more

 

Snyder seeks to lower jury duty exemption age to 70

(May 11, 2022)

HARRISBURG, May 11 – State Rep. Pam Snyder, D-Greene/Fayette/Washington, announced plans today to introduce new legislation that would allow Pennsylvanians to opt out of the jury duty pool on their 70th birthday. The current law allows seniors to apply for permanent jury duty exemption at age 75, and Snyder’s new bill would lower that age to 70. Snyder argued strongly that elder individuals should not be burdened with the expensive and time-consuming process of serving on jury duty, citing the high cost of long-distance travel often incurred by jurors, especially those living in rural areas. “Our seniors have done their civic duty for decades, and they deserve to be relieved from the stressful and exhausting process of being called for jury duty,” said Snyder. “This bill would help elder folks save money and energy and give them more time with their families and friends.” The new legislation is currently gathering co-sponsors and will soon be referred to a House committee.

Snyder: $760K+ awarded to replace dilapidated bridge

(Apr 21, 2022)

MORRIS TOWNSHIP, April 21 – State Rep. Pam Snyder, D-Greene/Fayette/Washington, announced today $760,192 in state funding has been awarded to Greene County to replace the bridge at the intersection of Walker Road and Patterson Creek in Morris Township. “I’m so happy that these funds will replace a bridge in Greene County,” Snyder said. “But this is honestly just a drop in the bucket. There are countless bridges throughout southwestern Pennsylvania that are in dire need of repair or replacement. I am eager to pursue similar projects in the future and help secure more state funding to rebuild our bridges.” Snyder added that the bridge to be replaced was rated as being in poor condition and met the Federal Highway Administration’s eligibility criteria for replacement. This project was one of 56 announced today through PennDOT’s Multimodal Transportation Fund , a state grant program aimed at improving highways, bridges, rails, pedestrian trails and bike trails.

(Apr 08, 2022)

CARMICHAELS, April 8 – State Rep. Pam Snyder, D-Greene/Fayette/Washington, met with members of the East Dunkard Water Authority board this week to discuss necessary steps to lift the Boil Water Advisory currently mandated by the Department of Environmental Protection. “I commend the new members of the board who have dedicated a large portion of their time to addressing decades of neglect to the system and the authority as a whole,” Snyder said. “I look forward to working with them and reaching a permanent solution in the near future.” In attendance were EDWA board members Tracy Pekar, Mark Blaker, Gary Moser and Paul Bierer, as well as the authority’s new engineer, and Snyder with her staff. Pekar, Blaker and Moser were named to the board in the last three months, as was Jerry Dorsey, who was not at the meeting. “As new members of this board, we are laser focused on delivering clean water to the customers of EDWA,” Pekar said. “We’re working tirelessly to find the funding to fix the many issues with the system, bring the authority into the 21 st century, and give the customers the clean water they deserve.” EDWA has several applications pending at the state and local levels for more than $3 million in funding to repair dysfunctional parts of the system so that the Southwestern Pennsylvania Water Authority can begin supplying clean drinking water. “I’m committed and Read more
