Quigley Confirms $520,000 in Grants to Replace Sewer Line in Lower Pottsgrove, Develop Royersford Riverfront Park and Trail
9/18/2018
HARRISBURG – Rep. Tom Quigley (R-Montgomery) announced that the Commonwealth Financing Authority (CFA) today met and approved a $419,919 grant for the replacement of a sewer line located in Lower Pottsgrove Township.

“I worked to secure this grant because I knew it would reduce the responsibility customers would otherwise face through system improvement charges on their bills,” Quigley said. “The grant will almost cover the total project cost of $494,011.”

The project involves the replacement of 1,357 linear feet of defective and leaking sanitary sewer line and six manholes along North Valley Road. The completed project will result in the reduction of extraneous stormwater entering the sanitary sewer system, enabling future development in the area. The line serves 42 residential properties and is part of a corrective action plan, as well as a connection management plan, which are both mandated and approved by the Department of Environmental Protection.

Another grant for $100,000 will be used for the development of Royersford Riverfront Park and Trail. The project, impacting a mile-long trail beginning at Main Street and First Avenue and ending near an existing trestle bridge, will consist of the installation of 750 linear feet of a 10-foot wide ADA-compliant trail of a paved, slip-resistant surface. Trail amenities will include a pavilion with four picnic tables, two trash receptacles and three benches along the trail, as well as interpretive signs. The total project cost is $572,300.

The CFA was established as an independent agency of the Commonwealth and holds fiduciary responsibility over the funding of programs and investments regarding Pennsylvania’s economic growth.
