HARRISBURG – Rep. Curt Sonney (R-Erie) announced today that the Pennsylvania Infrastructure Investment Authority (PENNVEST) has awarded a low-interest loan of $7.25 million to the Harborcreek Township Sewer Authority.
The project includes the reconfiguration of the authority’s collection system by installing 10,000 feet of various size sanitary sewer pipe, approximately 33 manholes, two meter vaults, upgrades to the 6 Mile Pump Station and the construction of a 750,000-gallon surge tank at the 6 Mile Pump Station site.
“I am very pleased that Harborcreek Township has received this loan,” said Sonney. “This loan will help them complete this much-needed project, and I was happy to do my part to advocate for this project.”
The funding for PENNVEST comes from a combination of state funds approved by voters, Growing Greener, Marcellus Legacy funds, federal grants to PENNVEST from the Environmental Protection Agency and recycled loan repayments from previous PENNVEST funding awards. Funds for these projects are disbursed after expenses for work are paid and receipts are submitted to PENNVEST for review.
