Watson Announces Grant of Nearly $100,000 for Dublin Borough
HARRISBURG – Rep. Kathy Watson (R-Bucks/144th) announced today that a state grant worth $95,893 has been awarded to Dublin Borough to assist with the rehabilitation of a sanitary sewer line the borough owns and operates in Bedminster Township.

“This grant is great news for residents and users of Dublin’s water and sewer systems,” said Watson. “This will go a long way in helping with the overall project costs of rehabilitating a section of the system and will prevent the majority of the cost from being passed onto ratepayers. I am pleased to see the state invest in this type of project, which ultimately improve our quality of life.”

The project will entail the relining of 1,100 linear feet of the Kern Drive interceptor, a 12-inch sanitary sewer line that runs from the intersection of Elephant and Bucks roads and extends northeast through Kern Drive and Barnhill Road. The rehabilitation of the Kern Drive interceptor will help reduce inflow and infiltration in the collection system.

The total cost of the project is $112,816.

The project received the funding through the Pennsylvania Small Water and Sewer Program, which is administered by the Commonwealth Financing Authority within the Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED).

The Pennsylvania Small Water and Sewer Program offers grants for small water and sewer infrastructure projects and can be used to assist with the construction, improvement, expansion, or rehabilitation or repair of a water supply or sanitary sewer system.
