HARRISBURG – State Sen. Greg Rothman (R-34) and Rep. Torren Ecker (R-193) today announced the approval of state assistance for upgrades to the Cumberland-Franklin Joint Municipal Authority wastewater treatment collection system.
The authority will receive $423,700 to upgrade four pumping stations and install three flow meters within its wastewater treatment collection system in Shippensburg Township and Shippensburg Borough.
“Proper wastewater treatment is crucial for public health, quality of life and economic development,” Rothman said. “I am happy to announce state assistance for this important project.”
“Infrastructure improvement is a key ingredient for economic development and this funding will provide assistance with a much-needed sewer improvement project,” Ecker said.
The funding was awarded by the Commonwealth Financing Authority, an independent agency of the Department of Community and Economic Development.
