CFA Awards More Than $8 Million To 42 Flood Control, Dam, Water, Sewer, Stormwater Projects

On August 19, the Commonwealth Financing Authority announced more than $8 million in funding to support H2O PA Flood Control, High Hazard Dams, and Water, Sanitary Sewer, and Stormwater projects.

“Investments in our water and sewer systems preserve Pennsylvania’s infrastructure and the health of our communities,” said Gov. Tom Wolf. “My administration is committed to the health and safety of residents in all corners of the Commonwealth, and the funding approved yesterday will benefit communities for years to come.”

The H2O PA Program provides for single-year and multi-year grants for the construction of drinking water, sanitary sewer and storm sewer projects; the construction or renovation of flood control projects; and the repair or rehabilitation of high-hazard unsafe dams.
