Pickett Announces $1 Million for Laporte Water Line Project
HARRISBURG – Rep. Tina Pickett (R-Bradford/Sullivan/Susquehanna) announced today that more than $1 million in state funding from the Pennsylvania Infrastructure Investment Authority (PennVEST) will allow Laporte Borough in Sullivan County to move ahead with a water line replacement project.

The funding, which includes a 1 percent loan of $687,602 and a grant of $326,128, was approved today by the PennVEST Board of Directors.

“I am pleased that Laporte has been awarded this funding, which will make this project more affordable for borough residents,” Pickett said. “PennVEST funding helps communities replace and update their aging infrastructure, and this funding will go a long way to ensure existing water lines and storage tank can be replaced.”

The project includes replacing 3,700 feet of water lines and constructing a new, 150,000-gallon, glass-lined finished water storage tank.

Construction is expected to begin next spring and last about a year.
