Marysville Receives $500,000 H2O PA Grant

Funding for sewer/storm water separation project

The Borough of Marysville is among a select number of recipients of highly competitive H2O PA grants, according to Senator Jake Corman (R-34).

H2O PA was created under Act 63 of 2008 to fund water and sewer projects, as well as storm water projects, flood control projects, and high-hazard dam repairs.

Marysville will use its $500,000 grant to separate combined sanitary sewer system from the storm sewer system and construct 20,000 ft of new storm and sewer lines in the borough.

“The Commonwealth Financing Authority received 720 applications for H2O PA grants and the competition for the funding was intense,” Senator Corman said. “The CFA awarded the grants based on legislated priorities including environmental conditions and regionalization. This award clearly shows that the CFA recognized the importance of the sewer separation project to Marysville and its residents.”
