Browne Announces Grant for Coopersburg Infrastructure Project

HARRISBURG – Senator Pat Browne (R-Lehigh) today (September 18) announced a $150,000 grant for needed infrastructure repairs and upgrades in Coopersburg Borough.

The Municipal Authority of the Borough of Coopersburg was awarded the grant to replace the roof liner in the 250,000 gallon in-ground water storage reservoir facility. The project includes demolition of the current roof structure and replacing it with a new roofing system. These improvements will lower the risk of contamination and leakage of water.

“Communities throughout Pennsylvania are struggling with the financial burden of providing adequate infrastructure for their residents,” Senator Browne said. “I was pleased to be able to secure this grant for Coopersburg Borough to help meet these tremendous financial challenges and ensure the borough can provide exceptional service its citizens deserve.”

Funding for the projects was approved by the Commonwealth Financing Authority under the Pennsylvania Small Water and Sewer Program.

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.
