PHILADELPHIA - The U. S. Environmental Protection Agency has awarded a $435,500 grant to Sandy Township, Clearfield County, Pa. to help provide public sewers to about 100 residential and commercial customers
“This project will eliminate problems with raw sewage discharges, and provide the Sandy Township area with a healthier environment and better quality of life,” said Donald S. Welsh, regional administrator for EPA’s mid-Atlantic region.
The project includes installing more than 18,000 feet of sanitary sewer pipes and providing a centralized wastewater collection system for the customers along U.S. Route 119 and West Liberty Road in the West Liberty area of the township. Wastewater will be conveyed to the Sykesville Borough (Jefferson County) wastewater treatment facility for disposal.
The grant will provide partial funding for the $1.4 project with the rest of the funding coming from state and local funds.
