Causer Announces Flood Protection, Water Grants for Area Communities
9/18/2018
HARRISBURG – Rep. Martin Causer (R-Turtlepoint) today announced nearly $1 million has been awarded to three McKean County communities to make needed water, wastewater and flood protection improvements.

“Investing in our infrastructure will improve both public safety and quality of life for the residents of these communities,” Causer said. “I was happy to support these grants and am pleased these worthwhile projects will be able to move forward.”

Port Allegany Borough will receive $410,563 toward its flood mitigation project. This grant funding will be used to help acquire temporary and permanent easements among 55 properties along Lillibridge Creek and the Allegheny River necessary to construct 6,000 LF of earthen levee, 2,400 feet of floodwall, five drainage basins and two closure structures. It will also fund water and sewer line protection and relocation.

Causer noted the project is necessary not only to help protect borough residents and businesses from the dangers of flooding but also to protect the borough’s water system, which has two wells located in a flood plain, and the sewer system, which has its treatment plant located in a flood plain. Additionally, the project would help retain 240-250 jobs at Ardagh Glass, which is also in the flood plain.

“This is a very important initiative for the borough, and I’m pleased we were able to secure funding for the next phase of this multi-million dollar project,” Causer said.

The grant was awarded by the Commonwealth Financing Authority (CFA) through its flood mitigation grant program. The CFA also approved two additional local projects through its Small Water and Sewer grant program.

The Bradford City Water Authority was awarded $350,000 to extend public water service to more than 60 homes in the Kenmar Acres area of Foster Township. Residents have been dealing with poor water quality and often an inadequate supply of water for many years. The project includes constructing a water line along Bolivar Drive, Downing Drive, Clark Drive, Lambert Drive and Long Lane, as well as installation of four fire hydrants and service connectors for new customers. This extension of public water service will provide residents with a safe, dependable and high-quality source of water.

Mount Jewett Regional Sewer Authority was awarded $172,198 to make improvements to its sanitary sewer system to cut down on inflow and infiltration of ground water. Specifically, the authority is looking to replace the current vitrified clay pipe along Oberg Avenue, which passes a significant amount of ground water, with modern gasketed PVC pipe. It will also upgrade four brick manholes with precast concrete manholes. By reducing inflow and infiltration, the project will help prevent overflow and improve the efficiency of the borough’s sanitary sewer system.
