CONNEAUT LAKE – Rep. Parke Wentling (R-Crawford/Erie/Lawrence/Mercer) announced three boroughs in the 17th District received a combined $210,00 in Pennsylvania Small Water and Sewer Program grant funding.

“This grant funding helps improve infrastructure on which so many in the district rely. These projects will improve services,” Wentling said. “I applaud the Commonwealth Financing Authority for recognizing the merits of these projects.”

Project details are as follows:

• Jamestown received $140,000 to replace its current Liberty Street Pump Station wet well and valve unit. Approximately 565 linear feet of force main and about 490 linear feet of gravity sanitary sewer pipe will also be replaced as part of the project.
• Linesville received $35,000 to install supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) equipment to remotely monitor the water level in its water tower and two reservoirs.
• Cochranton received a $35,000 grant to install two backup generators that would ensure water pumps continue to run during power outages.

Grant funding is through the Commonwealth Financing Authority’s Pennsylvania Small Water and Sewer Program, which 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.
