AVONDALE, PA — State Rep. Christina Sappey announced that Avondale Borough has been awarded $412,125 in state funding from the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development.

The grant will be used to replace an influent pump, related pumping controls and backup equipment at the Avondale Borough Wastewater Treatment Plant. By replacing the pump and outdated piping and equipment, the borough hopes to reduce ongoing maintenance costs of the greater pump system.

“This project is essential to maintaining current, well operating infrastructure within the borough,” said Sappey, D-Chester. “Improving our infrastructure will have a positive impact on our communities for years to come. I am thankful to see this state funding request approved and I am proud to have worked with Avondale Borough to secure this grant.”

“Borough Council and I are grateful to Representative Sappey for her advocacy, hard work and commitment to the residents of Avondale. This grant will help us update and improve our services to our community,” said Mayor Susan Ruzcidlo, Avondale Borough.

“On behalf of the Borough Council, I’m pleased that Avondale Borough is the recipient of a grant that will provide much needed updates and improvements to the water and sewer plant. We’d like to thank state Representative Christina Sappey for her hard work and support in this endeavor,” said Paul Morgan, Avondale Borough Council president.
