Reed, White Announce State Funding for Water System Improvements in Indiana County
– Rep. Dave Reed (R-Indiana) and Sen. Don White (R-41) today announced the awarding of $370,000 for a water line extension project in Armstrong and Conemaugh townships. The lawmakers played a key role in securing the state funding through the Department of Community and Economic Development’s small water and sewer grant program.
“I am pleased funding was approved for this water system upgrade and congratulate the Indiana County Municipal Services Authority on its successful application,” Reed said. “This grant is an important investment in ensuring a safe and reliable source of drinking water for folks who live and work in the area.”
Specifically, the grant will be used by the authority to install 6,500 feet of water line along Cheese Run Road and 1,300 feet of water line along Darlene Drive. The project will alleviate low water levels and provide clean drinking water to residents and a business in the area.
“A clean and reliable water supply is the most basic and significant asset for any home or business,” said White. “Securing funding necessary for vital public water service projects has always been a top priority for my office and I appreciate working with Representative Reed on efforts such as this, that make a true difference in improving the quality of life in our community.”
The total project cost is $438,072.
The funding was approved and awarded by the Commonwealth Financing Authority, which was established as an independent agency that holds fiduciary responsibility over the funding of programs and investments in Pennsylvania’s economic growth.
