In many cases, the end of the year gives you time to step back and take stock of the last 12 months. This is when many of us take a hard look at what worked and what did not, complete performance reviews, and formulate plans for the coming year.

Governor Corbett Announces $82 Million Investment in Water Infrastructure Projects in 5 Counties

HARRISBURG, Pa., Jan. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Governor Tom Corbett today announced the investment of $82 million in seven drinking water and wastewater projects in 5 counties through the Pennsylvania Infrastructure Investment Authority (PENNVEST). 

"While there may fewer than the usual number of projects approved at today's PENNVEST Board of Directors' meeting, they nonetheless represent a significant investment on the part of the commonwealth in our clean water infrastructure," Corbett said. "These projects will not only protect public health but will also stimulate millions of dollars in new private investment and job creation, all of which are so important to my administration and the citizens of Pennsylvania."

Of the $82 million total awards, $69 million is for low-interest loans and $13 million is offered as grants.

The awards range from a $997,800 loan to eliminate wet weather discharges of inadequately treated waste into the Ohio River in Allegheny County, to a $28.5 million loan/grant combination to construct a new regional wastewater treatment plant to eliminate discharges of inadequately treated waste into publicly accessible areas of Lycoming County.

The funding comes from a combination of state funds approved by voters, federal grants to PENNVEST from the Environmental Protection Agency and recycled loan repayments from previous PENNVEST funding awards. Funds for the projects are disbursed after bills for work are paid and receipts are submitted to PENNVEST.
