From staff reports
Rouseville Borough is receiving nearly $1.5 million to rehabilitate and upgrade the borough’s existing water treatment plant, water sources, storage and distribution system.
The $882,000 loan and $590,000 grant for Rouseville is part of a nationwide $462 million investment by the U.S. Department of Agriculture to modernize drinking water and wastewater infrastructure across rural America.
The remaining funds will be used for several upgrades to the plant that include new meters, block replacement on the same foundation, lab and equipment.
The distribution system will provide new residential water meter replacement and replacement of water lines within the borough.
Three other entities in Pennsylvania are receiving the USDA funding. They are the Redstone Township Sewer Authority, Brockway Borough Municipal Authority and Central Wayne Regional Authority.
