Governor Shapiro: $274 Million Investment in State & Federal Funding to Improve Water Quality in 22 Counties Across Pennsylvania

The funding will support 30 drinking water, wastewater, stormwater, and non-point source projects across the Commonwealth which will increase water quality for Pennsylvania’s citizens.


With today’s announcement, PENNVEST has invested $12 billion in clean water projects.

Harrisburg, PA – Today, Governor Josh Shapiro announced the investment of $274 million for 30 drinking water, wastewater, stormwater, and non-point source projects across 22 counties through the Pennsylvania Infrastructure Investment Authority (PENNVEST). The projects include replacing lead or other corrosive pipes, rehabilitating aging systems, upgrading service capabilities, extending service to more communities, and reducing environmental contaminants through compliance with current regulatory levels and agricultural Best Management Practices (BMP’s). 

The Shapiro Administration continues to focus on infrastructure upgrades with the goal that every Pennsylvanian has access to clean water.

“My Administration is focused on protecting public health and the environment across the Commonwealth – and these investments will help to uphold Pennsylvanians’ constitutional right to clean air and pure water," said Governor Josh Shapiro. "Thanks to our federal partners in the Biden Administration and the hard work of PENNVEST, $12 billion has been invested to safeguard our clean water infrastructure and the health and safety of Pennsylvanians, and we’ll continue to drive this funding out to ensure Pennsylvanians have safe, clean water.” 

The funding for these projects originates from a combination of state funds approved by voters, Growing Greener funds, Marcellus Legacy funds, the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) stimulus funds, the federal grant awards to PENNVEST from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency under the Clean Water Act and the Safe Drinking Water Act Amendments, and the recycled loan repayments from previous PENNVEST funding awards.

“For more than thirty-six years, PENNVEST has been dedicated to the mission of providing resources for clean water across the Commonwealth. In those three decades, we have seen communities grow, aging towns and cities revitalized, and farmers take a stronger approach to responsibly managing land,” said PENNVEST Chairman Dr. Brian Regli. “As a result, today we cross the threshold of $12 billion invested in clean water projects by PENNVEST. This monumental achievement is a testament to the hard work of so many and a continued promise by the Shapiro Administration to ensure the health and safety of Pennsylvanians.”

A list of project summaries follows:          

Drinking Water Projects

Blair County

  • Altoona Water Authority – received a $7,500,000 loan to replace approximately 15,000 linear feet of aging cast-iron 8-inch and 12-inch waterline serving the municipalities of the City of Altoona, and Logan, Allegheny, and Frankstown Townships. A portion of the project will address lead-impacted galvanized pipe in an area that will be a part of PennDOT’s improvement and paving project expected to take place in mid-2025. The project will eradicate continual repairs from breakage and leaking issues that the Authority is currently experiencing, eliminate outages, pressure drops, loss of water and dirty water the consumers have faced. The coordination of this project with PennDOT’s project plan will also save money for water ratepayers due to decreased pavement restoration costs.

Bucks County

  • ***Aqua Pennsylvania, Inc. – received a $6,770,000 grant to install Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS) equipment consisting of six (6) 10-ft diameter filter vessels with anion exchange resin, three (3) new low lift pumps to push treated water through the vessels, and a 97,000-gallon waste holding tank to equalize backwash prior to disposal by trucking. The project will minimize the presence of Perfluorooctanoic Acid (PFOA) and Perfluorooctanesulfonic Acid (PFOS) in the finished water via treatment of the existing Edgley groundwater well field source. The reduction of PFAS levels due to this project will bring the Edgely well into acceptable levels defined by DEP.

Erie County

  • ***Erie City Water Authority – received a $238,205 grant and a $471,795 loan for

Phase 5 of a project to replace the existing wrought iron service lines containing leaded goosenecks primarily within the Borough of Wesleyville and Lawrence Park Township. The City of Erie’s lead remediation falls within the funding from previous phases of this project. All phases of this project will decrease potential lead contamination in the system and reduce water loss due to pipe leakage.

Indiana County

  • Indiana County Municipal Services Authority – received an $8,655,920 grant and a $5,369,240 loan to create better efficiency by consolidating the system. The project addresses four (4) waterlines, Rt. 403 Cameron Road Waterline, Rt. 422 Iverson Road Waterline, School Road Area Waterline and Penns Manor to Uniontown Waterline, as well as the East Pike Pump Station. The waterline portion of the project will include the installation of a total of 79,088 linear feet of new waterline, 7 service connections, appropriate appurtenances, and two (2) above ground metering stations. The East Pike Pump Station project includes the demolition of the existing pump station, the installation of a new prefabricated, above-grade pump station with two (2) pumps, telemetry and metering, a distribution supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system, and a hookup for a mobile generator in event of a power outage. New 2” and 6” Pressure Reducing Valves (PRV) will also be installed in the Ernest PRV Vault. The project also includes the installation of 177-meter pits for each customer tap as well as 45 hydrants throughout the project area. This project will enhance availability and provide potable water to customers with wells of poor water quality or quantity, provide fire-fighting water to areas without current capabilities, and allow for three (3) of the water systems to have a backup source in emergency situations as a part of the interconnections.

Lawrence County

  • Wampum Borough – received a $2,395,496 grant and a $1,004,504 loan to replace existing distribution waterlines with lead joints primarily in the areas of Clyde, Kay, Main, and Beaver Streets. The distribution line replacement includes 9,200 lineal feet of 6” ductile iron waterline and 100 lineal feet of 12” steel casing with 6” ductile iron waterline including appurtenances and restoration. Additionally, the existing water distribution system, dating back to 1905, has tuberculated and cracked cast iron pipes which also need to be replaced. The project will reduce the risk of lead poisoning and lead levels to the community by eliminating lead components in the public water system. The removal of the existing cast iron tuberculated and cracked pipe will also improve water quality for the end user.
  • ***Wampum Borough – received a $1,600,000 grant to remove and replace lead service lines that have been in place since 1910 and 6” cast lead joints primarily in the areas of Clyde, Kay, Main and Beaver Streets. Approximately fifty (50) ¾” water service lines that contain lead joints will be replaced with new copper water lines, in addition to main line repairs and restoration. The replacement of leaded service lines will eliminate the possibility of lead contamination to the public water system and prevent a threat to public health and safety.

Luzerne County

  • Borough of Freeland Municipal Authority – received a $3,639,000 loan to replace the Upper Lehigh standpipe tank that is in poor condition and has a low tank turnover rate of approximately 12 days.

The valve vault will house an altitude valve to open and close based upon the tank level and include a pressure transmitter to monitor and record the tank level. A submersible tank mixer will be installed to prevent stagnation and thermal stratification to provide uniform water age and reduce ice buildup. The project will also include the demolition of the existing Upper Lehigh tank once the new tank is in operation. These improvements will enhance water flow in portions of the service area that currently experience poor water quality. The project will also allow the existing Harding Street Tank to be taken out of service for rehabilitation work while maintaining adequate pressure and emergency storage for the system’s customers.
  • Hazleton City Authority – received a $1,425,000 loan to replace a deteriorating, cast-iron water transmission line in Hazle Township.
