WAYNESBURG – Rep. Bud Cook (R-Greene/Washington) today applauded nearly $2 million in state infrastructure funding for the Southwestern Pennsylvania Water Authority (SWPA) for a project in Wayne Township, Greene County.

The funding, awarded by the Pennsylvania Infrastructure Investment Authority (PENNVEST), will be used to extend a water line approximately 23,000 feet to service customers currently served by the Brave Water and Sewer Authority (BWSA). Valves, fittings, fire hydrants and service connections will also be installed.

“It is always important to invest in our infrastructure to ensure the accessibility and reliability of a clean water supply,” Cook said. “As we continue to encourage people to ‘Come Home, Go Bill and Have a Ball’ here in 50th District, this is also a necessary investment in the quality of life in our communities.”

Upon completion of the project, BWSA will no longer be a regulated water supplier and SPWA will own, operate and maintain the water system.

Since its inception in 1988, PENNVEST has served communities and citizens by providing grants and low-interest loans to support sewer, storm water and drinking water projects across the Commonwealth.
