Toohil Announces $2.2 Million State Investment in Luzerne County Water Infrastructure Project
4/22/2015
HARRISBURG – Rep. Tarah Toohil (R-Luzerne) announces the approval of a state grant totaling $2,210,181 for a system improvement project in Luzerne County through the Pennsylvania Infrastructure Investment Authority (PENNVEST). The PENNVEST Board of Directors awarded the grant at its meeting today.
 
The funding will go toward the total estimated cost of a project that will supply residents in the village of Stockton with potable water from the Hazleton City Authority. A 12-inch waterline will be extended 2 miles along Club 40 Road from an existing line. New curb stops and valve boxes will be installed, along with water meters and fire hydrants. The existing unfiltered water system will be abandoned.
 
“I am pleased the Stockton project received PENNVEST approval,” said Toohil. “This project will give residents a safe and reliable drinking water supply by eliminating the use of an untreated surface water source with high levels of contamination that posed an imminent danger to the public. It will also result in higher water pressure for improved fire safety protection.”
 
The funding comes from a combination of state funds approved by voters, federal grants to PENNVEST from the Environmental Protection Agency and recycled loan repayments from previous PENNVEST funding awards. Funds for the projects are disbursed after bills for work are paid and receipts are submitted to PENNVEST.
