On top of the $67 million that Pennsylvania received through the Clean Water and Drinking Water State Revolving Funds, Pennsylvania recently obtained an additional $240 million from U.S. Environmental Protection Agency which will be used to finance water infrastructure projects and deliver clean drinking water to communities across the state.
PA Governor’s Office highlighted:
The funding, which will help communities across Pennsylvania access clean drinking water, improve wastewater treatment, clean up pollution, protect the environment and increase disaster resilience, was made possible through President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.
“Pennsylvanians need and deserve clean, safe water,” said Gov. Wolf. “This is a historic investment in public health, the environment and storm and disaster preparedness. With this money, Pennsylvania can help guarantee the safety of our drinking water, improve wastewater treatment and help our stormwater system cope with the increased damage from storms worsened by climate change.
