HARRISBURG – Sen. Cris Dush (R-25) and Rep. Mike Armanini (R-75) announced $410,757 has been awarded by the Commonwealth Financing Authority (CFA) to an Elk County infrastructure project.
The City of St. Marys received the grant for a project to replace sewer line pipes that have reached the end of their useful life and are failing at an increasing rate.
“As we have seen throughout Pennsylvania, much of our aging infrastructure – particularly our water and sewer systems – is increasingly in need of repair and replacement,” said Dush. “I’m glad to have helped St. Marys secure this funding for this necessary project to replace this sewer line.”
“I am very pleased to have worked with Senator Dush in bringing this much needed funding to St. Marys,” Armanini said. “This is the first step that needs to be taken in order to keep St. Marys a growing community.”
The water infrastructure project dollars are Local Share Account funds, with that funding created by the PA Race Horse Development and Gaming Act (Act 71 of 2004), which provides for the distribution of gaming revenues through the CFA to support projects in the public interest within Pennsylvania.
