Greensburg, PA– Today, State Senator Kim Ward and State Representative Eric Nelson announced that the Pennsylvania Commonwealth Financing Authority (C.F.A.) recently approved a $311,000 grant from their PA Small Water and Sewer Program to the Delmont Borough for relocation of sanitary sewer main along the Beaver Run tributary.

The project will incorporate relocating a troubling sanitary sewer force main that has been experiencing high wet weather discharge on to agricultural property.  Delmont Borough is working in concert with the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (D.E.P.) and neighboring Salem Township to remedy the issues.

“I am grateful that the C.F.A. is able to provide financial assistance to this project.  Delmont Borough has been working diligently to solve the problem that the force main is causing in this agricultural area.  They are a small borough with limited funds.  This grant will be a huge lift in moving this project forward”, stated State Senator Kim Ward.

State Representative Eric Nelson described the announcement as, “A big win for the hard-working people of Delmont Borough.  It is great example of multiple agencies working together to resolve a decades long sewage issue, I am really excited.”

The C.F.A. PA Small Water and Sewer Program provides grants to municipalities and municipal authorities for activities to assist with the construction, improvement, expansion, or rehabilitation and repair of a water supply or sanitary sewer system.
