HARRISBURG – Sen. Cris Dush (R-25) and Rep. Brian Smith (R-66) announced that $582,200 has been awarded by the Commonwealth Financing Authority (CFA) to a Jefferson County infrastructure project.
Brockway Borough Municipal Authority’s Rattlesnake Filer Plant – the primary water source for the southern portion of Jefferson County’s Brockway Borough – is in need of improvement, according to the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection, and was awarded $582,200 for those improvements.
“This necessary project will improve water quality for a significant number of Brockway residents and help reduce operational costs for Brockway Borough Municipal Authority,” said Dush. “I’m happy to have helped ensure this worthy project received funding.”
“Brockway Borough will immediately benefit from this much-needed state funding to better serve area residents and employers,” Smith said. “Without this support, these vital water treatment and infrastructure improvements could have resulted in massive rate increases for local customers.”
The water infrastructure project dollars are Local Share Account funds, with that funding created by the PA Race Horse Development and Gaming Act (Act 71 of 2004), which provides for the distribution of gaming revenues through the CFA to support projects in the public interest within Pennsylvania.
