WEST CHESTER – March 29, 2017 – State Senator Andy Dinniman announced that three Chester County municipalities will receive $450,000 in total state funding for improvements to water and sewer treatment systems.

“These funds will help local municipalities provide necessary water and sewer infrastructure upgrades,” Dinniman said. “The improvements mean safer, cleaner and more efficient water and sewage systems for local residents.”

The grants are as follows:

  • $300,000 to the Borough of Avondale for wellhead protection and water system improvements. 
  • $50,000 to Valley Township for wastewater pump station improvements.
  • $100,000 to West Whiteland Township for sewer collection system rehab and infiltration reduction.

The grants come as part of more than $25 million in total state funding that the Commonwealth Finance Authority today approved to fund 146 water infrastructure projects throughout the state through its Small Water and Sewer Program. The program provides support to assist with the construction, improvement, expansion, or rehabilitation or repair of a water supply or sanitary sewer system.
