Conshohocken’s Sewer System Gets State Grant

The Conshohocken Borough Authority, which operates Conshohocken’s sewer system, has been awarded a $$404,750 grant from the state toward a sewer main rehabilitation project. The grant will applied to cover the majority of the cost of a $484,636 project, which will install cured-in-place pipe liners on approximately 1,573 linear feet of 20-inch sewer main and 1,205 linear feet of 22-inch sewer main. The completion of this project will ease excessive inflow and infiltration.

“This rehabilitation project will help Conshohocken Borough Authority address needed repairs to their water infrastructure, which will protect residents,” said State Senator Vincent Hughes (D-Philadelphia/Montgomery). “I’m pleased that that state is investing in this community and its efforts to ensure a properly functioning water system.”

The grant was awarded through the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development’s Commonwealth Financing Authority, which provides support for economic stimulus projects in communities throughout Pennsylvania.
