Water Improvement Grant Awarded to Somerset County, Says Metzgar
SOMERSET – In conjunction with Somerset County Commissioner James Yoder, Rep. Carl Walker Metzgar (R-Somerset/Bedford) today announced the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) has awarded a grant of $750,000 for water improvement projects in the village of Gahagen in Shade Township.

“This is great news for the area as the water system in Gahagen has suffered from numerous problems,” said Metzgar. “I join Commissioner Yoder in welcoming this grant that will bring infrastructure improvements which will be a great aid for residents.”

The problems in Gahagen range from cloudy water to low pressure, in addition to having no fire hydrants in the village.

The Center City Water Authority is also completing a waterline extension project in two other areas of Shade Township, the village of Rockingham and Bunker Hill Road. It includes the construction of a 240,000 gallon water tank which would allow the residents of Gahagen to be connected.

The DCED grant comes from the 2014 Competitive Community Development Block Program.
