Midstate counties receive funding for water infrastructure projects


HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – Thirteen nonprofit water, wastewater, stormwater and spring projects across Pennsylvania have moved closer to completion after the $199 million investment dollars through the Pennsylvania Infrastructure Investment Authority (PENNVEST).

“Ensuring the reliability of our most valuable infrastructure is critical on the road to recovery for many of our communities,” Governor Wolf said.

Funds for these projects will be disbursed after expenses for the work have been paid and receipts have been submitted to PENNVEST for review.

“PENNVEST continues to make valuable and prudent use of the state’s revolving fund,” Governor Wolf said. “As we continue to exceed the $10 billion milestone invested in drinking water projects, it is clear that there is still a need for infrastructure improvements and I am proud to be part of a system performer that provides efficient support while saving Pennsylvanians money.”

Two Midstate counties will receive funding, including:

County of Lebanon

  • Mt. Gretna Campmeeting Association – received a loan of $1,404,527 to demolish a water storage tank and build a replacement tank, including treatment upgrades and updated flow meters. The project will increase drinking water reliability and water pressure in the service area.

Dauphin County

  • Capital Region Water – received a $41,622,000 loan to replace approximately 6,300 feet of watermain and associated piping in the Allison Hill District of the City of Harrisburg, as well as structural improvements to DeHart Dam , which experiences extreme infiltration and insufficient spillway capacity. The project will address security concerns and water supply issues and is part of PENNVEST’s Programmatic Funding (ProFi) program.
