Grove Announces Grant Funding for York County Watershed Projects
1/15/2015
HARRISBURG – Rep. Seth Grove (R-York) today announced the awarding of grant funding for two projects in the 196th Legislative District. The projects, distributed by the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP), were among more than 100 across the Commonwealth to receive funding, totaling more than $23 million.
 
In the 196th District, funding will go to:

Jackson Township Community Park Stream Restoration, $53,000. This grant will be used to improve water quality in Codorus Creek, by creating riparian buffers in the area of the greatest soil erosion. The funding will allow the township to safeguard this important local resource.
Pennsylvania Trout Inc. for the West Branch Codorus Creek Route 116 Bridge, $55,910.
 
 “Water is perhaps our most valuable resource,” Grove said. “I am happy to see funding return to York County and know that these groups will put it to good use.”
 
The funding comes from Pennsylvania’s Growing Greener program. Funding awarded will go toward protecting watersheds from impairment and to restore watersheds which have already been damaged by pollutants.
