Senator Killion Announces PA Small Water and Sewer Grant Awarded to Nether Providence Township

Harrisburg, PA- Today, Senator Tom Killion (R-9) is happy to announce that Nether Providence Township has been awarded $147,721 in grant money from the PA Small Water and Sewer to help reline the Beatty Run and Creekside Lane sewer lines within the township. 

“With the awarding of these funds Nether Providence Township will be better equipped to make the necessary improvements to these sewer lines. A project that I know will have a positive impact upon the residents living in Nether Providence,” said Killion.

The project will reline 2,300 linear feet of 15’ and 18’ sewer line along Beatty Run and 150 linear feet of 8’ sewer line along Creekside Lane. The Beatty Run sewer line is the largest line in the township and has been subject to sanitary sewer overflow, resulting in a consent order with PA DEP. This relining project will resolve the two largest priority inflow and infiltration problem areas identified in the township.

“I have worked with, and heard the concerns from Nether Providence Township regarding these large sewer lines. I am so pleased that they have received funding from the PA Small Water and Sewer, so that they can start addressing these issues that have become a top priority for the township,” concluded Killion.
