Browne, Mackenzie Announce Grants for Area Infrastructure Projects

 

HARRISBURG – Sen. Pat Browne (R-Lehigh) and Rep. Ryan Mackenzie (R-Lehigh/Berks) today (Sept. 18) announced they successfully led the effort to secure funding for needed infrastructure upgrades for several townships and boroughs in Lehigh County.

 

Funding for the projects was approved by the Commonwealth Financing Authority under the Pennsylvania Small Water and Sewer Program.

 

Grants awarded for various municipal infrastructure upgrades are as follows:

  • Alburtis Borough – $100,000 for the rehabilitation of sanitary sewer lines and laterals.
  • Lower Macungie Township – $225,000 to rehabilitate sewer mains located in the township.
  • Macungie Borough – $95,000 for water system improvements.
  • Salisbury Township – $100,000 for the rehabilitation of sanitary sewer lines at various locations throughout the township.

“Our local governments are facing increased financial pressures to provide, repair and expand sewer and water assets in their jurisdictions,” Sen. Browne said. “Working to get these projects funded is an important step in ensuring the continued levels of service that the citizens have come to expect.”

 

“This is welcome funding for our local governments, which often have difficulty affording the costs associated with repairs, upgrades and expansion of vital infrastructure, such as sewer and water,” said Mackenzie. “State funding takes some of the pressure off local taxpayers to cover the costs of these necessary projects.”

 

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