Killion Praises Nearly $5 Million State Assistance for Chester Flooding Issues and Water Quality Improvements

State Senator Tom Killion (R-9th) today announced a $4,888,205 loan for the Stormwater Authority of the City of Chester to address serious flooding and related water quality issues in Chester. The loan is from the Pennsylvania Infrastructure Investment Authority (PENNVEST).

The loan will be used for structural changes to reduce flooding in Chester and to help mitigate water quality degradation in Chester Creek, Ridley Creek and the Delaware River.

“We are fortunate that Pennsylvania has programs such as PENNVEST to assist communities with their needs. I am supporter of PENNVEST, and I’m pleased funding is being used to help Chester’s families with local flooding issues,” said Killion.
