PITTSBURGH, PA− July 21, 2023 − Today, State Senator Jay Costa announces a $14.6 million investment in water infrastructure through the Pennsylvania Infrastructure Investment Authority (PENNVEST). This investment by PENNVEST is crucial in PWSA’s ongoing effort to remediate and replace aging infrastructure in Allegheny County.
“Each and every one of us deserves clean air, potable water, and a safe home we can afford,” said Senator Costa. “In conjunction with the federal and state government, I am glad we are taking care of the infrastructure that improves the water delivered to our families, friends, and neighbors.”
In Allegheny County, Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Authority received a $4,599,382 loan and a $10,005,618 grant to replace lead service lines at approximately 1,200 homes. The project will contribute to the protection of adults and children from lead.
This project was funded by the Federal Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act. Funds for these projects are disbursed after expenses for work are paid and receipts are submitted to PENNVEST for review. A complete list of PENNVEST investment is available here.
