Metzgar: PENNVEST Loan Great News for Meyersdale
4/20/2009

Rep. Carl Walker Metzgar (R-Somerset) today announced that the PENNVEST Board of Directors has approved a $2.4 million loan for Meyersdale Borough to assist in a comprehensive sewer repair and rehabilitation project, which will save money for the borough.

“I am very pleased that the PENNVEST board has approved this very worthwhile effort for the residents of Meyersdale Borough and I am happy to have assisted in this process,” said Metzgar. “It is a pleasure to work with the borough officials. They put forth a great effort to help make this happen. I congratulate the borough council members for their dedication. This method of financing will save money, as opposed to a private loan, and that is huge for the borough.”

The $2.4 million loan will be used for the elimination of wet weather bypasses of wastewater going into both the Casselman River and Flaugherty Creek by removing nearly 2,000 tons of sludge from the borough’s lagoon treatment plant. Another aspect of the project will entail the rehabilitation or replacement of more than one mile of sewer collection lines.

The loan has a 20-year term. It is a part of an overall $530 million statewide infrastructure effort that represents PENNVEST’s first allocation of American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) funding.
