HARRISBURG – State Sen. Greg Rothman (R-34) today announced the approval of $1.3 million in state assistance for sewer improvements in Cumberland County.
The following projects were approved by the Commonwealth Financing Authority:
Wormleysburg Borough: $250,000
The funds will help pay for repairs of the sanitary sewer system along South Front Street in Wormleysburg.
Borough of Carlisle: $520,000
The grant will be used for the rehabilitation of Regional Sanitary Sewer System pipes near the Ridge Street Wastewater Pumping Station in Carlisle.
Newburg-Hopewell Joint Authority: $420,750
The funds will help pay for the televising and rehabilitation of sewer mains in Newburg Borough.
“Cumberland County is the fastest growing county in Pennsylvania. With that growth comes a greater demand for facilities, infrastructure and utilities,” Rothman said. “I am glad to bring these state grant dollars back to the community where they will make a positive difference for residents.”
The Commonwealth Financing Authority is an independent agency of the Department of Community and Economic Development.
