Metzgar: Funding to Save Somerset Lake is Here

Metzgar: Funding to Save Somerset Lake is Here

Rep. Carl Walker Metzgar (R-Somerset/Bedford) today said he is pleased to announce that after years of work, $6.7 million has been released to save the Somerset Lake.

The money has been released by the Wolf administration and will be available this fiscal year to begin the rehabilitation project.

Metzgar said that the same could not have been done without all of the support from the community.

“The community came together with both money and political might to support me in the fight to save the lake,” said Metzgar. “It would have never happened without all of us coming together. We are very proud to partner with the Somerset Lake Action Committee and those who support the Somerset Lake Project.”

Metzgar also thanked Gov. Tom Wolf and the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission for their support of the project.

“The folks at the commission moved heaven and earth to get here and the governor was on board,” said Metzgar. “It was difficult but we all got together in the end to preserve one of Somerset County’s crown jewels.”

Public meetings will be held for the project soon.
