HARRISBURG – Rep. Carl Walker Metzgar (R-Somerset) announced today that that the Pennsylvania Infrastructure Investment Authority (PENNVEST) awarded an $877,000 low-interest loan to Salisbury Borough to upgrade the wastewater treatment plant.

“Most of the existing equipment is over 40 years old and is nearing the end of its useful life,” said Metzgar. “I am pleased to see PENNVEST make this investment in our district.”

Improvements include replacement of pumps, check valves, screening system, piping and an emergency generator at the plant.
The project is expected to start on Sept. 11 and be completed on June 28, 2024.

Founded in 1988, PENNVEST provides grants and low-interest loans for design, engineering and construction of publicly and privately owned drinking water distribution and treatment facilities, as well as storm water and wastewater projects.
