HARRISBURG – The Williamsburg Municipal Authority in Blair County has been awarded a $77,051 grant to replace water meters, according to Rep. Jim Gregory (R-Blair).
The Commonwealth Financing Authority approved Small Water and Sewer Program grants Monday. The program was created by the Pennsylvania General Assembly to support water, sewer and stormwater projects costing between $30,000 and $500,000.
“Williamsburg Municipal Authority will use this grant to support its project replacing more than 600 failing water meters in its system. This replacement is needed due to battery problems with the existing ones,” Gregory said. “I’m thankful Williamsburg Municipal Authority took the initiative to apply for funding.”
The water system owned by Williamsburg Municipal Authority not only serves Williamsburg borough, but also portions of Woodbury and Catherine townships.
