Liverpool Municipal Authority Receives $969,823 in State Funding

Low-Interest Loan to Construct Water Treatment Facility

The Liverpool Municipal Authority will receive a $969,823 low-interest loan from the Pennsylvania Infrastructure Investment Authority (PENNVEST) to construct a water treatment facility, according to Senator Jake Corman (R-34).

The PENNVEST funding approved today (April 20) will be applied to the costs of constructing a 480 square-foot water treatment facility, which will house an arsenic treatment system and disinfection facilities. The funding will also be applied toward the costs of connecting a new well to the Authority’s system.

“Unacceptable levels of arsenic forced Liverpool to shut down one well and look at remediation systems,” said Senator Corman. “This project will address the contamination problem and provide peace of mind to the 300 households in Liverpool by ensuring their water service is clean and reliable.”
