HARRISBURG ¬– Reps. Kate Klunk (R-Hanover) and Seth Grove (R-Dover) announced today the Jefferson Codorus Joint Water Authority receive a $300,00 Pennsylvania Small Water and Sewer Program grant to improve its wastewater treatment plant in Codorus Township.

“Rep. Grove and I are glad to announce funding for this project, which will improve efficiency at the Jefferson Codorus Joint Water Authority’s treatment plant,” Klunk said. “These upgrades will help the authority improve services to residents and will lessen the impact on the environment.”

Specifically, the funding will be used to install an in-line screenings removal unit at the headworks of the treatment plant. This unit will minimize clogs forming in pumps and improve plant efficiency. Higher efficiency is achieved by removing additional waste from the waste stream and by reducing the amount of sludge removed from the plant.

“The authority strives to provide top-notch services to residents at affordable costs. This grant helps it achieve this goal,” Grove said. “Rep. Klunk and I thank the financing authority for seeing the merits of this important project.”

Grant funding is through the Commonwealth Financing Authority’s Pennsylvania Small Water and Sewer Program, which 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.
