HARRISBURG – Rep. Russ Diamond (R-Lebanon) today announced that the Northern Lebanon County Authority was awarded $85,714 in funding from the Commonwealth Finance Authority (CFA) for a sewer replacement project in Jonestown Borough.

“I am pleased the authority is receiving this much-needed funding to replace the sewer line,” said Diamond. “Basic infrastructure such as this is critical for our communities; however, maintenance, upgrades and expansion are costly. I am glad the CFA recognized the importance of this project and awarded funding accordingly.”

The existing gravity sanitary sewer line along Fisher Street has had various issues due to the progressive sagging of the pipe. The authority will replace the pipe with 350 linear feet of 8-inch PVC sanitary sewer line between West Hill Street and West Swatara Drive. The project will also include the installation of two manholes and replace 20 service laterals along the project route.

The total project cost is $100,841.

The grant was awarded by the CFA today in Harrisburg under the Pennsylvania Small Water and Sewer Program.

The Pennsylvania Small Water and Sewer Program offers grants for small water and sewer infrastructure projects and can be used to assist with the construction, improvement, expansion, or rehabilitation or repair of a water supply or sanitary sewer system.
