LOWER ALLEN – Rep. Sheryl Delozier (R-Cumberland) today announced a $381,893 grant has been awarded to Lemoyne Borough for improvements to its sanitary sewer collection system.
Delozier advocated for the funding through the state’s Commonwealth Financing Authority’s Small Water and Sewer Program. The Pennsylvania Small Water and Sewer Program offers grants for small water and sewer infrastructure projects and can be used to assist with the construction, improvement, expansion, or rehabilitation or repair of a water supply or sanitary sewer system.
“The sanitary sewer lines in Lemoyne are old,” Delozier said. “As a result, inflow and infiltration enter the system. This causes some unclean discharge into the Susquehanna River. Through this grant, I am hopeful we can make some short-term improvements and develop a long-term plan to reduce overflows and improve the quality of our waterways.”
The grant will allow for the entire sanitary sewer collection system to be cleaned, root obstructions cleared, and lines televised and inspected to determine deficiencies. Just over 100,000 linear feet of sanitary sewer line will be repaired to determine a corrective plan of action for the borough.
The 88th Legislative District in Cumberland County includes Lower Allen and Upper Allen townships and the boroughs of Lemoyne, Mechanicsburg, New Cumberland, Shiremanstown and Wormleysburg.
