Pennvest awarded $79 million in low- cost loans and grants for drinking water and sewer projects in 16 Pennsylvania counties, Governor Tom Corbett announced.
Financing from the Pennsylvania infrastructure investment agency included almost $13 million to the Williamsburg Municipal Authority to upgrade a water treatment plant and add six miles of sewer collection lines to reduce discharges into the Chesapeake Bay.
The South Wayne County Water and Sewer Authority received almost $10 million to replace 20 miles of deteriorated water mains and curb “very high water losses,” the governor said. About $1.5 million was loaned to the Chester County conservation district to help reduce runoff into the west branch of the Brandywine Creek and Christina River.
