HARRISBURG – Rep. Parke Wentling (R-Crawford/Erie/Lawrence/Mercer) announced today that the Pennsylvania Infrastructure Investment Authority (PENNVEST) awarded Linesville Borough more than $6 million in grant and loan funding to improve water quality and infrastructure.

“This funding will help the borough continue to provide dependable water service,” said Wentling. “I am happy to see continued commitment to providing clean, quality water and pleased PENNVEST approved this project to help better serve the district I am honored to represent.”

The project will consist of:
• Constructing a new pump station at Penn Street that features disinfection units, distribution pumps, a Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition system, and an emergency backup generator.
• Installing a new tank mixer at the Airport site in Conneaut Township, Crawford County, to reduce risk of stagnation, ice buildup and formation of disinfection byproducts.
• Relocating and rebuilding the borough garage near Bunday Street’s tank and pump station to an area not prone to flooding.
• Installing a water line extension along Homestead Avenue to provide a loop in the existing distribution system.

Founded in 1988, PENNVEST provides low-interest loans for design, engineering and construction of publicly and privately owned drinking water distribution and treatment facilities, as well as storm water and wastewater projects.
