PHOENIXVILLE, PA — State Rep. Melissa Shusterman, D-Chester/Montgomery, announced that three neighborhoods throughout her legislative district each received grants to help upgrade water, sewer, storm sewer and flood control infrastructure.
The money will be distributed through two grant programs funded through the Commonwealth Financing Authority.
- $650,000 awarded to Phoenixville Borough to upgrade its wastewater treatment plant.
- $300,000 awarded to Schuylkill Township to make improvements to its stormwater collection and conveyance system along Paul Lemen Drive.
- $420,750 awarded to Upper Providence Township to replace the deteriorated storm sewer system along Carolina Drive.
“This funding will help communities throughout our area enhance the safety measures in place to help us overcome extreme weather conditions like the recent tropical storm Isaias,” Shusterman said.
“Chester and Montgomery counties experienced major home and roadway flooding from this storm, and I’m confident that completing these three projects will help prepare our communities to better mitigate the impacts of future disasters.”
