HARRISBURG – New Ringgold Borough and Shoemakersville Borough have both received grants from the PA Small Water and Sewer Program to make improvements to local wastewater treatment plants, according to Senator David G. Argall and Representative Jerry Knowles.

“I am thankful these vitally important projects received the funding they need to support local wastewater treatment plants,” said Argall.  “Projects like these are critical for the smooth functioning of our communities.  These upgrades will greatly benefit both New Ringgold and Shoemakersville.”

“I applaud local officials for their foresight in bringing these areas up to standards in regard to treatment of wastewater,” said Knowles. “This funding is instrumental in helping replace and repair the various sewage facilities and systems.  I am pleased to see that communities in the 124th District will have the opportunity to conduct repairs to avoid any sewage issues for those residing in the area.”

Shoemakersville Borough received a $103,062 grant to replace valves that have been in use since 1999.  The money will be used to replace the existing valves with new, electronically controlled valves to create a more efficient and reliable system.

New Ringgold Borough received a $35,870 grant to make improvements to the borough’s wastewater treatment plant.  Completing this project will assist the borough in maintaining a safe and environmentally compatible treatment plant.
