Scarnati Announces $830,000 PENNVEST Funding Awarded in Jefferson County

(HARRISBURG) – The Eldred Township Municipal Authority Tank Replacement Project has been awarded $830,000 through the state’s PENNVEST Program to make major improvements, according to Senator Joe Scarnati (R-25).

Scarnati explained that the project will erect a new 96,000 gallon welded stainless steel tank to replace the existing damaged tank. The funding being awarded is critical to protecting the environment, providing clean water to area residents and will create 10 local construction jobs.

“I commend the Eldred Township Municipal Authority for undertaking this important project,” Scarnati said. “Water systems are extremely vital to the health of a community, but very expensive to build and maintain. I’m very pleased that this substantial assistance was approved by PENNVEST and will provide support for improvements for Eldred Township. The funding will certainly be a crucial part of helping to safeguard our local water supplies and protect public health.”

Scarnati noted that the current tank is a glass-lined steel bolted tank which serves 150 customers within the township. During a 2014 inspection it was determined the tank was in need of replacement due to multiple locations of ice damage and significant metal corrosion. The new tank inlet will be configured to ensure good water circulation. Other project related improvements include replacement of existing pumping controls and digitized flow monitoring.

According to Scarnati the project was approved by the PENNVEST Board at their meeting in Harrisburg on April 19th. The total funding of $830,000 is being awarded as a $546,459 grant and a $283,541 low interest loan.

The state’s PENNVEST Program provides low-interest loans and grants for the design, engineering and construction of drinking water distribution facilities, stormwater conveyance and wastewater treatment and collection systems.

Just a little note along the line of quality of life town., check it out, Ulysses and Austin are listed in the worst small towns to live in the top 100 in the state of PA. Galeton should be #1 on the 100 list. Ulysses is number 88 and Austin is higher than that, really a sad distinction check it out, the worst towas to live in Pennsylvania top 100 worst. I understand Austin, and Galeton should be but not too sure about Ulysses, check and see what you think. I don't like it!

I believe you request 100 worst small towns in Pennsylvania. It takes into account, also wages, home price, jobs etc. I believe it can be found there, or go to Pennsylvania statistics and type in 100 worse small towns listed in PA. It is available try it out. It is very very sad to be listed in such a category! I don't remember who did the study, but it was PA. As stated under there survey.
