State grant to fund lead pipe replacement
A grant of more than $1 million has been designated to the Coraopolis Water and Sewer Authority for upgrading old lead piping infrastructure.
According to a press statement from State Rep. Anita Kulik, the CWSA will use the funds from Pennsylvania Infrastructure Investment Authority to replace “approximately 2,200 feet of leaded-joint distribution pipe and any associated valves, as well as 44 leaded-brass service meters.”
Any lead service lines uncovered during the process will also be replaced.
“I’m pleased to have helped secure a state grant of nearly $1.1 million to upgrade Coraopolis’ drinking water system,” Kulik said. “I take great notice of the work the borough does to protect the residents, and the hard work the borough manager, staff and officials do to submit these grants.”
