HARRISBURG – Rep. Donna Scheuren (R-Montgomery) announced today that three projects were rewarded with key grants from the Commonwealth Financing Authority (CFA) in the 147th district. The projects’ rewarded grants are as follows:

The Franconia Sewer Authority sanitary sewer extension project received a $1.12 million grant from CFA’s H2O PA Program. The project proposes sewer extensions in both the High Street and Homestead Avenue service area, as well as the Schoolhouse Road/Indian Creek Road area. This project is intended to improve the sewer infrastructure in Franconia Township.

The Berks-Montgomery Municipal Authority sanitary sewer rehabilitation project received a $276,617 grant from CFA’s PA Small Water and Sewer Program. The project entails rehabilitating existing 8-inch main vitrified clay pipes with cured­in-place pipe technology. Once the main line sewers have been rehabilitated, the service laterals will be lined and the manholes will be rehabilitated.

The Telford Borough Authority Hidden Valley sewer project received a $268,025 grant, also from CFA’s PA Small Water and Sewer Program. This project will extend public sanitary sewer service to the existing Hidden Valley residential neighborhood in West Rockhill Township and provide public sewer service to adjacent homes located along County Line Road in East Rockhill Township and Franconia Township. This grant will help fix a system that has a long history of failures. 

I was thrilled to see these grants get awarded for various infrastructure upgrades across my district,” said Scheuren, “These grants will provide crucial funding for all of the projects, which will reap massive benefits for our community once completed. I was proud to write letters of support for all three of these projects and know the additional funding will help get them across the finish line.”
