HARRISBURG – A state grant totaling more than $335,000 was awarded to a wastewater treatment plant project in Wyoming County, according to Rep. Tina Pickett (R-Bradford/Wyoming) and Sen. Lisa Baker (R-20).
The project involves the decommissioning of a wastewater treatment plant and installation of 27 sewer connections in the Meshoppen townhouse development, connecting the units to the wastewater treatment plant in Meshoppen Borough.
“Infrastructure improvements are critical to enhancing the quality of life in our smaller communities,” said Pickett. “The Local Share Account (LSA) grant program makes such upgrades possible for rural municipalities that otherwise could not afford them. I was glad to work with Sen. Baker to advocate on behalf of this project for Wyoming County.”
“The current treatment plant at the development is beyond its intended life and due for an upgrade,” Baker said. “I am pleased to assist the Redevelopment Authority of the County of Wyoming in securing the necessary funds for the project.”
The project is being funded through the Commonwealth Financing Authority’s LSA program, which uses gaming revenue to support projects in the public interest across the Commonwealth.
