WASHINGTON COUNTY – Washington County has been awarded two Pipeline Investment Program (PIPE) grants through the Commonwealth Financing Authority, Rep. Bud Cook (Washington/Fayette) announced.

“Pennsylvania is a leader in the energy economy, and grants to support natural gas and energy infrastructure are significant in making sure we remain a leader,” said Cook. “It is a privilege to serve a district that recognizes the importance of pipeline infrastructure.”

Mon Valley Alliance will receive $331,826 for the Alta Vista Natural Gas Line Extension, which will extend a natural gas pipeline to the Alta Vista Business Park in Fallowfield Township.

Perryman Company will receive $1.37 million for its Coal Center Pipeline Extension. The funds will be used to install a natural gas pipeline in the California Technology Park in Coal Center Borough.

PIPE provides grants to construct the last few miles of natural gas distribution lines to business parks, existing manufacturing and industrial enterprises. This results in the creation of new economic base jobs while providing access to natural gas for residents.
